Abstract This paper presents an experimental and numerical study on co-firing olive waste (0, 10%, 20% on mass basis) with two coals in an entrained flow reactor under three oxy-fuel conditions (21%O 2 /79%CO 2 , 30%O 2 /70%CO 2 and 35%O 2 /65%CO 2 ) and air–fuel condition. Co-firing biomass with coal was found to have favourable synergy effects in all the cases: it significantly improves the burnout and remarkably lowers NO x emissions. The reduced peak temperatures during co-firing can also… CONTINUE READING
