Abstract

In this experimental study, the combustion characteristics of torrefied biomass co-firing in a pulverized-coal furnace were investigated. Torrefied biomass residues (oil palm empty fruit bunches called OPEFB) were used as a substitute for coal. To examine the feasibility of partial substitution of coal by biomass, coal only and torrefied OPEFB/coal blend with 20% substitution ratio were comparatively investigated. The results showed that torrefied biomass co-firing with 20% substitution ratio in a pulverized-coal furnace can produce stable combustion, similar temperature distributions and lower emission levels of CO2, as well as comparable emission levels of CO, NO and SO2 when compared to burning coal only.
