The main objective of this work is to show the behaviour during combustion of oat and triticale straw compared to wheat straw, related to emissions and differences in slagging and fouling of boiler components, working under similar conditions. Several combustion tests have been carried out in a 500 kWth moving grate boiler as preliminary tests before using these biomass straws in a 25 MWe power generation plant. Three combustion tests with a stationary period of...
