Abstract

Thermal utilisation of residues and industrial wastes in combination with fossil fuels and/or biomass will become a very important factor in future energy production in Europe from the viewpoint of environmental aspects, the careful use of resources on fossil fuels as well as developing/increasing new market segments for decentralised energy production. But also in existing markets and technologies like iron and steel or cement production the utilisation of residues or wastes might play a more important role in future. The main goal of the project "Advanced Combustion and Gasification of Fuel Blends and Diagnostics of Alkali and Heavy Metal Release" was the investigation and development of data and technologies for commercial use of wastes in industrial applications.

The topics investigated in the project as well as the main results are as follows:

1. Combustion of fuel blends in different types of combustors
2. Gasification of fuel blends in a fluidised bed gasifier
3. Gas analysing sensors, especially alkali sensors
4. Techno-economic study on industrial utilisation of fuel blends produced from industrial wastes and coal
