South African power producers require low cost, environmentally clean yet very reliable baseload power generation that can leverage South Africa's vast indigenous coal resources. Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) Boiler Technology has increased its world-wide presence principally due to its highly-desirable fuel ﬂexibility feature combined with signiﬁcantly reduced air emissions, particularly SOx, NOx and even CO2.

November 29, 2017 - Changes in the global solid fuel market provide a market advantage to owners of plants that are fuel agnostic. But fuel flexibility means more than just being able to burn a wide range of coals or even coal and biomass mixes. It also means that plant reliability, maintenance, ease of operation, and stack emissions must be largely unaffected over a very wide range of fuel quality including coal and biomass fuel mixes. Robert Giglio, Senior VP of Sumitomo SHI-FW discusses why Fuel Flexible CFBs are the Future of Solid Fuel Power Generation in the latest issue of Power Insider Magazine.
