Abstract

Final report of project JOF3-CT97-0037.

The overall motivation to undertake this research project was to contribute to the reduction of the greenhouse gases emission - primarily carbon dioxide - from power plants firing solid fossil fuels, in particular, low rank, high moisture fuels such as peat, brown coal and lignite. In the industrial conversion of these fuels process improvements are expected to substantially alleviate any hazardous impact on the regional and global environment.
A consortium comprising of nine partners from industry and universities including three partners from the Newly Associated States concentrated on increasing the efficiency of power generation, maintaining boiler availability and reducing emissions from high-moisture fuels by investigating and applying cost effective pre-drying technologies during the project.
