Materials for increased performance in sustainable fuel combustion

Objective

There is a EU policy to increase the total amount of energy from renewable resources from 6% to 12% by 2010. Energy from waste and biomass represents the largest contributor of energy generated from renewable and is likely to make the largest contribution to the proposed increase. This combustion processes involve aggressive high temperature environments with HCI as the dominant aggressive species.

The project aims to an understanding of mechanisms of oxide scale breakdown with respect to the use of pre-oxidation as a method of alloy protection. Furthermore, it provides corrosion data from laboratory and field-testing and facilitates the selection and use of existing stainless steels and coatings on carbon steel for these conditions.
