Calcination of limestone in a circulating fluidized bed with coal residues as fuel
In April 1989 a plant was set up by NOVEM and Kaldin BV in which limestone was calcined in a fluidised bed using coal residues and fine-grained coal as fuels. This report describes the plants and discusses and compares the period in which coal residues were used and that in which fine-grained coal was used. Emission levels, mass and energy balances and the product and its application in sand-lime bricks are discussed for each of the fuels. Other applications of the product are presented and the economic viability of the plant is discussed.
