In many Asian countries, power producers are turning to low quality solid fuels as they face increasing pressure to generate low-cost power. They are finding that fuel-flexible circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology can capture both the largest fuel cost savings and largest carbon emission reductions by co-firing biomass and other carbon neutral waste fuels.

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.
