- sulfur dioxide;
- atmospheric water;
The cheapest energy source for an electrical power plant is coal, but where fossil fuels are burned, flue gases contain sulfur dioxide which must be removed with gas desulfurization installations. The results of this desulfurization process are dilute sulfuric acid and an extremely corrosive atmosphere for the materials in the installation. Such an installation is ideal for the application of porcelain enamel. Considering the tenuous future of nuclear energy in the United States and in Europe, porcelain enamel factories worldwide would be wise to establish for themselves general standards and test methods for such an application to competently meet future demands.
