Cleaner coal technology - Combustion technology for low volatile coals

Coal-fired power generation currently accounts for approximately 30% of the total energy market share globally and contributes a significant portion of the total emissions to the atmosphere. Read more

Advanced oxy-coal combustion modelling and optimisation

Oxy-coal combustion with recycled flue gas is an emerging technology for efficient carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) that can substantially reduce carbon emission from coal-fired power plants. Read more

Fluidised Bed Biomass combustion

To achieve the UK’s ambitious target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050 without compromising energy security, the UK’s conventional power plants must be operated in a flexible manner in terms of high efficiency, using alternative fuels (e.g. Read more

The Development of Models for Mercury Oxidation in Oxyfuel Combustion

Oxyfuel combustion is one of the leading technologies for Carbon Capture and Storage. Mercury is released to the gas-phase during oxyfuel combustion of coal and biomass and form trace species in flue-gas. Read more

Biomass Combustion

Biomass Combustion is an important renewable form of energy for power generation. Combined heat and power, CHP, is an efficient way of utilising this energy most effectively in units of 30 to 60 MW. Read more

Ash Melting Behaviour and Deposition in Oxyfuel Biomass Combustion

The combustion of biomass is proposed as a “carbon neutral” alternative to fossil fuel utilisation and even a “carbon negative” technology when combined with Carbon Capture and Storage technologies such as oxyfuel combustion (Bio-CCS). Read more

Emissions and ash behaviour during the combustion of torrefied biomass

Torrefaction is a new technique of upgrading the quality of biomass as a fuel for power generation. The purpose of this research is to investigate the influence of the torrefaction on the combustion, pollutant emission and ash deposition of biomass. Read more

Alternative Aviation Fuels Combustion Experiments

As a consequence of concern over increasing greenhouse gas emissions, along with issues of availability and security of supply of conventional fossil fuels, there is a growing pressure to consider the use of alternative fuels in the aviation sector. Read more

Comparison of entrained metal aerosol emissions from conventional fuel combustion

Metal/inorganic impurities in fuels can have detrimental impacts on combustion and downstream systems. These vary widely between fuels and there are distinct differences between conventional coal and biomasses used for UK power generation. Read more
