Results obtained from the project aim at determining the usability of advanced and conventional boiler materials and are dedicated for the development and assessment of advanced process layout and boiler design strategies that enhance plant efficiency and reduce maintenance costs.
This project aims to develop a scale-up methodology and simulation tools which are required for the implementation of pulverised coal flameless oxidation (PC-FLOX) burners in utility plants. Substantial pilot (0.5MWth) experimental investigation will be the backbone in order to support the development and validation of scale-up methodology and CFD FLOX-specific sub-models. To develop simulation tools, these CFD FLOX-specific sub-models will be integrated into commercial CFD codes. A CFD modelling, experimental results and industrial partners’ expertise will lead to the development of the scale-up methodology for full-scale PC-FLOX burners. A CFD study and techno-economic analysis of utility plants operated with PC-FLOX burners will be carried out.
DEVelopment of High Performance SCR-CATalysts Related to Different Fuel Types
The goal of the project is to develop special SCR-DeNOx-catalysts for coal, bio-fuel and co-combustion with respect to efficient NOx-reduction, high mercury oxidation and low SO2-SO3-conversion. Therefore based on the further development of existing catalyst technology, innovative catalyst designs for bio-fuel applications or the use of nano-technology is applied. With respect to modified SCR-technology, also the effect on downstream air pollution control devices like FGD systems is investigated. Furthermore a 3D-CFD model is used and improved for the modeling of the SCR-system.
