- ... This paper investigates the novel use of elemental sulfur as a fuel in a combined cycle power plant, wherein sulfur is oxidized in the combustion chamber to produce work from a gas turbine. Produced sulfur dioxide is then reacted with calcite to produce anhydrite (CaSO₄) in a flue gas desulfurization unit. The desulfurization reaction is exothermic, producing heat that can be converted to electric ...
