Research scope and application

This research was performed with the objective to determine the combustion efficiency of the existing coal-fired combustor during co-firing agricultural residue with coal. The effi­ciency is calculated mainly based on the carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide emissions. Furthermore, this works also to demonstrate the technical feasibility of a fluidized bed as a clean technology for […]

Problem statement

Although there are many potential benefits associated with co-combustion, there are several combustion related concerns associated with the co-combustion of coal and biomass. Utiliza­tion of solid biomass fuels and wastes sets new demands for boiler process control and boil­er design, as well as for combustion technologies, fuel blend control and fuel handling systems. For example, […]

Fluidised Bed Combustion (FBC) technology

Fluidised bed combustion technology is one of the most significant recent developments in both coal and biomass incineration over conventional mass burning incinerator designs. This technology has been accepted by many industries because of its economic and favoura­ble environmental consequences. The major advantages of fluidized bed combustors are [8,9]: • Uniform temperature distribution due to […]

Sustainable Power Generation Through Co­Combustion of Agricultural Residues with Coal in Existing Coal Power Plant

Wan Azlina Wan Ab Karim Ghani and Azil Bahari Alias Additional information is available at the end of the chapter http://dx. doi. org/10.5772/52566 1. Introduction Waste-to-energy is gaining more and more attention as landfill costs and environmental concerns increase in many developed countries including Malaysia. Biomass from agricul­tural residues is one of the most important […]
