Title Biomass combustion: relationship between pollutant formation and fuel composition
Date 1989
Description A 65-kW refractory-walled reactor was used to study biomass combustion under conditions typical of the suspension-burning phase in a spreader-stoker-fired boiler. Isothermal combustion data and nitric oxide (NO) emission rates were obtained as a function of temperature, local oxygen concentration, and vertical velocity for sized biomass fuels. Two softwoods, a hardwood, and a North Carolina peat were studied.
