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 burning agricultural residues. In addition, the effect of biomass proper­ties such as such as particle size, particle density and volatility as well as influences of oper­ating parameters such as excess air, fluidizing velocity on axial temperature profile, the combustion efficiencies and CO emissions are also being investigated.
