August 1, 2018 - Combustion of biomass poses a number of problems, particularly in utility scale boilers. The circulating fluidised bed has features that control ash agglomeration, fouling, and corrosion, and therefore make it particularly suitable for biomass applications, with inherent characteristics that favour low emissions. The technology also has considerable potential for scale up, and adoption of greatly improved steam conditions.

August 1, 2018 - CFB can bring high value to countries that have large reserves of low quality lignites, coals and waste coals from mining operations, like: Colombia, Germany, Turkey, Russia, South Africa, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, India, China and Australia. Using conventional PC technology, these low quality fuels drive boiler size, cost, and, maintenance and plant downtime way up.
