Technical and Environmental Investigation of Co-firing of Lignite and Biomass in Çan Circulating Fluidized Bed Power Plant

E. Amirabedin & Z. Yilmazoglu
According to the IEA reports, Turkey generates approximately one-third of its total electricity from low grade lignite type of coal with limited reserves and high environmental impacts. In this regard, co-firing of lignite with sustainably-grown biomass in circulating fluidized bed (CFB) can be an unavoidable possibility for operating power plants with alternative local renewable sources and reducing their emissions. This study deals with the technical and environmental investigation of co-combustion of Çan lignite with some...
