VOKAB, The pathway of inorganic elements from waste fuels in power boilers
Start date: 2007-03-15
End date: 2010-03-15
The performance of various waste combustors is governed by the fuel composition. However, because of the heterogeneity of the fuel, the awareness of levels of certain inorganic components in waste fuels is far from satisfactory. Improvements in this field could facilitate pre-active selection of co-combusted waste fraction, and result in higher boiler availability, increased power production and less maintenance cost.
The expected outcome from this project has been increased awareness of fuel composition and detailed knowledge on inorganic reactions, governing fouling corrosion and agglomerations.
