We have investigated the SO2 and NOX emissions of petroleum-coke burning in a Rijke-type pulsating combustor. Petroleum coke has a higher heating value and lower ash content, as well as a much higher sulfur content, than coal. Significant SO2 reduction has been achieved by adding limestone or dolomite particles to the pulsating combustor. Control of NOx emissions can be obtained by using the low-excess-air-firing and staged-combustion techniques.
