The article presents the forecast which focuses on the growth of coal-fired power plants installing flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems by 2020. According to McIlvaine Co., coal-fired power plants will spend $200 billion for the implementation of FGD to combustion units in the said year with China expected to be the leading purchases, followed by the U.S. It reveals that the continued increase in natural gas prices makes coal as an efficient alternative energy resource.
