Alternative fuels for industrial gas turbines - (AFTUR)

Alternative fuels for industrial gas turbines - (AFTUR)

Objective

This project aims to contribute to the optimisation of alternative fuel powered industrial gas turbines for heat and power generation. The project will deliver the methodologies required to develop IGTs capable to operate on a wide range of alternative fuels. The use of liquid and gaseous fuels from biomass will help fulfil the Kyoto targets concerning GHG emissions. Waste gases from industrial processes will be evaluated as a potential gas turbine fuel. The project aims to assess the combustion performances of these new fuels for clean and efficient energy production by gas turbines. Another objective is to extend the capability of dry low emission gas turbine technologies to low heat value fuels produced by gasification of biomass (LHV < 25% natural gas) and H2 enriched fuels. As a whole the project will contribute to the aspirations of EU energy policy in harmony with the White paper on RES and the Green paper on the security of energy supply.
