Biomass co-firing in coal fired power plants

Abstract

The process of co-firing of biomass in coal fired power plants is discussed. For most coal-fired power plants, the conversion efficiencies are in the range of 30-38%. Biomass co-firing results in a dirct reduction of the CO2 emissions in proportion to the co-firing ratio. When proper choices of biomass, coal, boiler design, and boiler operation are made, traditional pollutants and net greenhouse gas emissions decrease.
