Gaseous and Particulate Emissions from Conventional Combustion and Oxy-combustion of a Lignite Coal

This manuscript reports on gaseous and particulate emissions from combustion of a lignite coal (Texas lignite PSOC 1443) in air as well as in a simulated oxy-fuel condition, i.e., in surrounding gases consisting of 40% O2 blended with 60% CO2. Particle sizes were in the nominal range of 53-90 ?m and combustion took place in a laminar-flow drop-tube furnace, electrically-heated to a wall temperature of 1400 K. The evolution of combustion effluent gases, such as NOx, SO2, CO as well as particulate emissions (ashes) were monitored and compared. Chemical analysis of submicron ashes was performed. Results showed that the oxy-combustion condition altered the combustion characteristics of the coals. Therein, emissions of NOx decreased, whereas emissions of SO2 increased. Preliminary results showed that at the oxy-combustion condition submicron particulate ash emissions were curtailed. Moreover, chemical analysis to the submicron ash demonstrated that Si, Al, Ca, Mg, and Fe were in lower concentration at the oxy-fuel condition.


Gaseous and particulate air pollutants in the Northeastern Mediterranean Coast
Erduran, AS; Tuncel, Süleyman Gürdal (2001-12-17)
The concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2), ammonia (NH3) and particulate matter were measured for a 6-month period and the concentration of gas phase nitric acid (HNO3) was measured for a 1-month period in the North-eastern Mediterranean atmosphere (Kucuk Calticak, Antalya) using a 'filter pack' system that was developed and optimised in our laboratory. Among all th gas phase pollutants, HNO3 had the lowest concentration (0.42 mug m(-3)) followed by ammonia. Most of the measured parameters showed variation...

Hybrid catalytic combustion technology, which is a staged process comprising a preliminary catalytic partial oxidation (CPO) step followed by a homogeneous flame combustion with interstage heat removal, was tested for the first time with mixtures of methane and hydrogen. Short contact time CPO experiments were run to elucidate the effect of the progressive substitution of methane with H-2 in the fuel feed to the structured catalytic reactor, which was operated under self-sustained conditions at high tempera...
Thermal characterization, combustion and kinetics of different origin crude oils
Gundogar, Asli S.; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2014-05-01)
In this research, the combustion behavior of six Turkish crude oils (light and medium type) was investigated by thermogravimetry/derivative thermogravimetry (TG/DTG) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) methods under atmospheric air in the absence of rock matrix. Two main reaction intervals were observed on all thermograms known as low temperature oxidation (LTO) and high temperature oxidation (HTO) regions. The resulting curves showed that the mass loss under combustion is accompanied by exothermic ...
Seismic velocity characterisation and survey design to assess CO2 injection performance at Kizildere geothermal field

The noncondensable gases in most geothermal resources include CO2 and smaller amounts of other gases. Currently, the worldwide geothermal power is a small sector within the energy industry, and CO2 emissions related to the utilisation of geothermal resources are consequently small. In some countries, however, such as Turkey and Iceland, geothermal energy production contributes significantly to their energy budget, and their CO2 emissions are relatively significant. SUCCEED is a targeted innovation and resea...
Thermal stability and SO2 resistance of Pd/Rh-perovskite based three-way catalyst wash-coated on cordierite monoliths
Bayram, Bilal; Önal, Işık; Külah, Görkem (2022-01-01)
The effect of hydrothermal aging and SO2 poisoning on the three-way catalytic performance of dispersed Pd/Rh-based and Pd/Rh perovskite-based catalysts were studied by using a dynamic activity test system that simulates redox fluctuations of gasoline engine exhaust conditions. Both catalysts were supported on ceria-zirconia-alumina and wash-coated on cordierite monoliths and were characterized by ICP-OES, BET, XRD, TEM-EDX, DRIFTS, and CO chemisorption. Their performance was very close when the catalysts we...
