Methods for reducing the emission of nitrous oxide from circulating fluidized bed combustion
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1996

Abstract - Two methods for the reduction of nitrous oxide emissions, afterbuming and reversed air staging, are investigated in a 12 MW circulating fluidized bed boiler. With afterburning the N2O emission can be reduced by 90% or more, using an amount of secondary fuel corresponding to 10% of the total energy input. With reversed air staging it is possible to reduce the emission of N2O to one fourth (25 ppm), without significantly affecting the other emissions. With reversed air staging no secondary air is used in the combustor and an air-ratio of about unity is maintained throughout the combustion chamber. Air for final combustion is added in the cyclone outlet.
