Damage to the environment due to SOx by way of acid rains, corrosion and serious health problems is a concern all over the world. The effects of these pollutants on the environment are serious and long lasting. A host of methods are available to tackle these toxic and corrosive emissions. The present paper discusses various systems and technologies available for controlling these pollutants.
