Sep 01, 1993 · This thesis examined the feasibility of using waste paper derived fuel in coal-fired boilers on Air Force installations in an attempt to help solve air pollution and solid waste disposal problems. The implementation of waste paper derived fuel was examined from both a technical acceptability and an economic feasibility viewpoint.
This study aims to explore the feasibility of T-EFB mixed with coal for application in large boilers. In this research, the effect of torrefaction on the properties of EFB fuel was first analyzed. Then, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) was conducted to determine the kinetic reaction parameters of the T-EFB and the flaring behavior of pyrolytic biomass residues.
This report examines the technological feasibility and capital cost of retrofitting oil and coal fired utility boilers to burn intermittently natural gas and the parent fuel. Using extensive studies of the retrofitting of such boilers to burn synthetic gas of low to moderate heating value (LBG), it is found that
This paper provides a general feasibility . assessment of projects that have converted coal-fired steam generating units to natural gas firing. We present an approach to assess permitting impacts to the project that dictate the direction and scope in terms of required equipment to

Pre-feasibility Study for Coal Mine Methane Drainage and Utilization April 2013. ArcelorMittal Coal Mines WHRB waste heat recovery boiler v . ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS field of CMM utilization first utilizing CMM in modified coal boilers to generate hot water for shaft heating in winter months.
Torrefied empty fruit bunch (EFB) co-firing is a promising technology to reduce emissions from coal-fired power plants. However, co-firing can influence the combustion and heat transfer characteristics in a coal boiler. In order to study the feasibility of co-firing application of torrefied EFB (T-EFB) in boilers, the combustion characteristics, gas emissions and heat flux distribution were analyzed, respectively.
