Cost Efficient Pecipitation of Sub Micron Particles in Flue Gases Formed by the Combustion of Solid Biofuel

J. Pettersson & M. Strand
This research considers three stage Electrostatic precipitators, diffusion charging and other novel techniques. Electrostatic Precipitators have shown to be both efficient and reliable on larger plants, however too costly to be an option for smaller plants. More stringent requirements on exposure of humans to particulate matter, especially fine particles, has put a pressure also on small plants to apply additional, costly filter technologies, to prevent emission of fine particulate matter. These more stringent requirements on...
