Emissions Mitigation from Biomass Co-firing with Coal in Fluidized Bed

D. Cebrucean, V. Cebrucean & I. Ionel
Biomass co­firing in fluidized bed represents among other technologies one of the most cost effective and efficient means of producing bio­energy and reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Biomass fuels are considered environmentally friendly energy sources for several reasons: (i) there is no net increase in CO2 as a result of biomass combustion; (ii) the emissions of SO2 can be reduced by co­firing since most biomass fuels have significantly lower sulfur content compared to...
