Abstract

The reduction of nitric oxide during combustion of coal char in a fluidized-bed combustor was examined with respect to two reactions : a char-catalysed reaction; and a char-consuming reaction, which control nitric oxide emissions. The relative importance of the two reactions was investigated by measuring detailed material balances for the reactions. The product distribution was explained in terms of three fundamental parallel reaction paths. Reaction rates were investigated with a fixed-bed flow reactor over the temperature range 883-1194 K, the same as the fluidized bed combustor.
