Challenges of the Thermal Conversion of Pyrolysis Oils with Respect to the Ash Deposit Formation, Fouling and Corrosion Behaviour and Particulate Emissions

Industrial combustion tests revealed that replacing heavy fuel oil with bio­oils is feasible, but not straight forward and some technical challenges during bio­oil combustion can occur. In this study fouling, corrosion phenomena and dust emissions during the bio­oil combustion are investigated both on lab­scale and full­scale. This is done in order to deepen the understanding of ash formation and deposition under these conditions as well as providing input and validation data for sophisticated modelling of...
