Safely increase the proportion of biomass blended with coal in industrial power plants
VTT fed different proportions of sawdust and pulverised forest residue mixed with various types of coal into the plant’s boiler and mapped the effects of the blends in different operational situations.
- Increased the proportion of a forestry waste stream used in in coal power plant fuel mixture
- Documented the safety of various coal grades and biomass combinations
By co-operating with VTT we were able to safely increase the amount of sawdust in the fuel blend.
