Abstract: During coal combustion, sulphur in the coal is converted into sulphur dioxide (SO2).This sulphur dioxide (SO2) is responsible for the formation of acid rain which is one of the widespread forms of pollution all over the world that causes harmful effects to humans and environment. To minimize the adverse impacts of SO2, it must be removed from flue gas. For reduction of SO2, flue gas desulphurization (FGD) is most commonly used. The mathematical viewer is developed and simulated for a gas liquid absorption column to control the flow rate of H2O2.The model equation is developed by considering material balance around the column. The absorption rate is determined by using different concentration of sulphur dioxide with hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide, not only absorbs the SO2 but it also produce useful by-product in the form of sulphuric acid (H2SO4).
