The emissions from natural gas-fired boilers and furnaces include nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), and carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), methane (CH 4 ), nitrous oxide (N 2 O), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), trace amounts of sulfur dioxide (SO 2 ), and particulate matter (PM).
Blending of coals to meet power station requirements
A pulverized coal-fired boiler is an industrial or utility boiler that generates thermal energy by burning pulverized coal (also known as powdered coal or coal dust since it is as fine as face powder in cosmetic makeup) that is blown into the firebox.. The basic idea of a firing system using pulverised fuel is to use the whole volume of the furnace for the combustion of solid fuels.
coal blending in power stations was mainly adopted to reduce the cost of generation and increase the use of indigenous or more readily available coal. Low -grade (high ash) coal can be mixed with higher grade (imported) coal without deterioration in thermal performance of the boiler, thus reducing the cost of
Enter the facility's information below. Write the letter "Y" or "N" next to each fuel type to indicate that the facility does or does not burn that type of fuel. PTE (ton/yr) = Engine Capacity (hp) x EF (lb/hp-hr) x 8760 hr x 1 ton/2000 lb. Emission Factor.
