The overall objective of this research project, funded by EC under the Joule 3 Programme, was to create new data on safety-technical characteristics of renewable fuels, wastes, low-rank coals and mixtures of these. The safety aspects of fuel storage, handling and feeding are an important issue in the development of new energy production technologies like pressurised IGCC and PFBC power production systems. Knowledge of basic handling and safety-technical characteristics of fuels and fuel mixtures is of crucial significance for the design of handling and feeding equipment, and safety systems, and for the assessment of explosion and fire hazards.
