Optimization of emissions from fluidized bed boilers
Journal article, 1992
The experiences of emissions of SO,, NO, and N,O from fluidized bed boilers obtained from extensive measurements by the Department of Energy Conversion, Chalmers University of Technology, are briefly summarized. In addition, results from secondary methods to reduce NO and N,O emissions are shown. With this background, possibilities for decreasing the N,O emissions by the optimization of boiler parameters involving the use of secondary methods are discussed. The problem lies in the increase in the SOz and NO emissions when a measure is taken to reduce the N,O emission. In particular, the influence of excess air and temperature is considered in comparison with selective noncatalytic reduction of NO.
