Application of the biomass, oxyfuel and flameless combustion for the utilisation of pulverised coals for electricity generation

Objective

This project will combine the three most advantageous new technologies for the future reduction of CO2 emissions from pulverized coal fuel fired power plants and simultaneously maintain high efficiencies and low emissions and be able to use a wide variety of (European) coals.

These three techniques include the combination of Biomass-Oxyfuel-Flameless Combustion. Biomass co-firing has a CO2 neutral characteristic, Oxy-Coal firing plus flue gas re-circulation will result in increased flue gas CO2 levels which can more easily be separated and sequestrated and Flameless Combustion has the advantage of extremely high efficiencies in combination with uniform heat transfer and very low emissions.

A combination of these three technologies, especially for coal, has not been investigated before.
