Oxidation of Volatile Nitrogen Compounds During Combustion in Circulating Fluidized Bed Boilers
Conference contribution, 1990

In circulating fluidized bed boilers, the volatile nitrogen species of the fuel are mostly oxidized to NO. This is shown in a test programme where the effect of batch supply of fuel on the NO emission has been carried out in two different commercial-type fluidized bed boilers. Measurements of gas concentration profiles of CO, NO HCN, NHa and C1 to Ca hydrocarbons in the boilers support the conclusions from the batch supply tests.
