In this study, flue gas emissions and combustion efficiencies during combustion and co-combustion of olive cake and coal were investigated in a bubbling fluidized bed. Temperature distributions along the combustion column and flue gas concentrations of O-2, CO, SO2 and NOx were measured during combustion experiments. Two sets of experiments were performed to examine the effect of fuel composition, excess air ratio and freeboard extension on flue gas emissions and combustion efficiency.

Combustion of olive cake and coal in a bubbling fluidized bed with secondary air injection
Varol, Murat; Atımtay, Aysel (2007-07-01)
Combustion performances and emission characteristics of olive cake and coal are investigated in a bubbling fluidized bed. Flue gas concentrations of O-2, CO, SO2, NOx, and total hydrocarbons (CmHn) were measured during combustion experiments. Operational parameters (excess air ratio (lambda), secondary air injection) were changed and variation of pollutant concentrations and combustion efficiency with these operational parameters were studied. The temperature profiles measured along the combustor column was...
Effect of recycle on fluidized-bed combustion and emission characteristics of high-sulfur lignite
Selçuk, Nevin; Harmandar, H; Altindag, H (2004-05-01)
The effect of recycle on gaseous pollutant emissions from fluidized-bed combustion of high-quality coals has extensively been investigated and is well documented. However, the effect of recycle on gaseous emissions from combustion of Turkish lignites with high ash, volatile matter, and sulfur contents has not been investigated to date. Recent trends in the utilization of indigenous lignites in fluidized-bed boilers necessitated investigation of pollutant emissions and adaptation of fluidized-bed combustion ...
Co-firing of olive residue with lignite in bubbling FBC
Gogebakan, Zuhal; Gogebakan, Yusuf; Selçuk, Nevin (2008-01-01)
The effect of biomass share on gaseous pollutant emissions from fluidized bed co-firing of various biomass fuels with high calorific value coals have extensively been investigated to date. However, effect of co-firing of olive residues with low calorific value lignites having high ash and sulfur contents has not been studied in bubbling fluidized bed combustors. In this study, experimental results of various runs pertaining to gaseous emissions (O2, CO2, CO, SO2, NO, N2O) from METU 0.3 MWt Atmospheric Bubbl...
Analysis of material collected on particles exposed to volatile matter of bituminous coal in a fluidized bed
Vural, H (1997-05-01)
The activity of fluidized bed particles towards the volatile matter of a bituminous coal was analysed by measurement of tar yield and the direct measurement of CO2 concentration in the exhaust gas from the devolatilization of bituminous coal particles in a laboratory-scale fluidized bed reactor. In a third approach, thermogravimetric analysis (t.g.a.) of the fluidizing particles was performed, indicating that calcium-containing particles exhibited the largest weight loss. In a fourth approach, a mass spectr...
Influence of coal briquette size on the combustion kinetics
Altun, Naci Emre; Bagci, AS (Elsevier BV, 2004-08-15)
In this study, the effects of one of the most important parameters in coal briquetting process, the briquette size, on the combustion behaviour of coal briquettes were determined from the view of combustion kinetics, i.e. their liability to ignite and combust. Effect of size on the combustion kinetics was treated by two different approaches. The first one consists of combustion kinetics experiments with briquettes of increasing sizes, thus of expanding volumes. In the second phase, briquette dimensions were...
