Evaluation of pressurized pulverized fuel combustion

Various technologies have been proposed for burning coal more cleanly and more efficiently. This project aimed to compare pressurized pulverized coal combustion systems with atmospheric and catalytic pulverized coal combustion and other advanced combustion technologies.

The viability and technical merits of pressurized pulverized coal combustion (PPCC) were assessed through a combination of detailed numerical and laboratory experiments. This included validation of numerical methods against measurements obtained by laser-based instrumentation. It was shown that gasification plays a key role in the efficiency of PPCC plant. Further work on hot gas cleanup will be critical to the future success of PPCC but currently little interest is being shown in this technology in Europe.
