Abstract

Conversion of char-bound nitrogen to NOx during combustion was measured for chars formed from nine coals. The effects of pyrolysis condition and coal rank of the parent coal on conversion of char-bound nitrogen to NOx are discussed. A model of NOx formation through combustion and NOx reduction on the internal surface of a single char particle was developed. The experimental results were fairly well explained by the model.
