The project was aimed at identifying the elements that were still missing in order to achieve a degree of technical reliability of CWM combustion technology similar to that of conventional fuels. Experimentation on an industrial scale was required to achieve the combustion technology development objectives. This experimentation included the following activities: (i) market investigation aimed at selecting burner manufacturers who were interested in a further development of high-concentration CWM combustion technology; (ii) selection of a plant with characteristics meeting the research objectives along the general lines suggested by the burner manufacturers; (iii) adjustments in the boiler selected for the experimentation and installation of the necessary instruments; (iv) development of a research methodology aimed first at determining an optimum configuration of the burner's and boiler's functional parameters and then at collecting the operating data in steady operating conditions; (v) trials execution; (vi) analysis of the results and issuing of a final report.
