The article presents the advantages of neutralizing wet electrostatic precipitator (ESP) effluent through magnesium hydroxide slurry. It notes that ESP is a technology that is over a century old and came back due to their successful use in controlling sulfur trioxide (SO3) gas and acidic mists in flue gas at electric power generation plants. It suggests that the acidic effluent should be neutralized before discharge into regulated discharge waters or reuse.
