Power project developers are demanding increased fuel flexibility in order to maximize utilization of local renewable biomass and recycled fuels such as refuse derived fuels (RDF), local agricultural and industrial wastes, tires, and forestry residues. These multi-fuel projects are becoming more common for several reasons. First, power producers are able to take advantage of locally available and much less expensive fuel sources

January 13, 2020 - The use of Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) circulating fluidised bed (CFB) combustion technology has grown from smallscale applications to large ultra-supercritical power plants in less than 20 years. The CFB is rapidly becoming the technology of choice for solid-fuel-fired power generation applications, particularly for locations with lower quality fuel. It addresses the need for sustainable use of domestic fuels in many countries, notably India.
