In the frame of the European co¬funded project DEBCO, advanced co¬firing applications of various feedstocks have been demonstrated in lab¬ scale up to industrial scale. This paper reports on the co¬firing of higher thermal shares of biomass beyond industrial practices in a 0.5 MWth pilot facility and smaller laboratory facilities. Findings from a large scale demonstration run are also highlighted. Results show that co¬firing of biomass up to about 50% thermal share is manageable. The...
