Empirical Indices to Forecast Adverse Effects of Biomass Co-Firing: The Analysis of 200 Full-Scale Experiences

D. García-Galindo, F.J. Royo, F. Sebastián Nogués & E. López
The present work aims to utilize experimental indices (EIs) to define ceilings for co¬firing. The novel methodology pursues finding a correlation between co¬firing effects described in full¬scale experiences and EIs. Technical reports, R&D papers have been reviewed and interpreted in order to quantify the impacts of co¬firing. Consulting with several companies and R&D centres has also been carried out for that purpose. Co¬firing effects have been classified into five impact categories (IC), from IC=1 when...
