Modelling of N2O reduction in a circulating fluidized bed boiler
Paper in proceeding, 1996

The N2O was measured in a circulating fluidized bed boiler of commercial size. Kinetics of N2O reduction and decomposition by char and over bed material from the combustor were determined in a laboratory fixed bed reactor. A mathematical model of the N2O chemistry in the combustor was set up, and the results from the simulation of N2O destruction were in good agreement with measurements of the N2O destruction from injection at different levels in the furnace of the boiler.
