Fuel Switch Combustion Engineering
RAS offers coal-to-gas, and coal-to-biomass fuel switch studies. We have unmatched expertise and extensive experience on biomass cofiring and conversion projects. Our capabilities include:
Burner modification or retrofit
Evaluate impact of fuel properties on furnace combustion, (e.g., moisture content, particle size, volatile matter content, etc.)
Control of slagging and corrosion formation
Impact on furnace exit gas temperature and hence steam temperature and boiler efficiency
Application of emission control technologies
CFD modeling of coal-to-wood conversion for a 500 MW wall-fired furnace. Modeling shows predicted NOx emissions between coal and biomass with various NOx reduction technologies.
CFD modeling of coal-to-wood conversion for a 500 MW wall-fired furnace. Modeling shows significant combustion differences between fuels and burner settings.
