Fine particle formation in biomass and sludge combustion

Fine particle formation mechanisms were determined during combustion of bark and sludge in circulating fluidised beds. The fine particle formation was studied both in full-scale combustion, and in a pilot-scale reactor.

The particles were found to form by the same mechanisms in the two systems. In addition, the effect of increasing the amount of sulfur and chlorine in the two systems on fine particle formation was determined.
