  • Coal-fired power on the way out?

    The past two years have witnessed the emergence of a powerful movement opposing the construction of new coal-fired power plants in the United States. Initially led by environmental groups, both national and local, it has since been joined by prominent national political leaders and many state governors. The principal reason for opposing coal plants is that they are changing the earth’s climate. ...

  • Overview of mercury control in coal-fired power plants

    During combustion, the mercury (Hg) in coal is volatilized and converted to elemental mercury (Hg0) vapor in the high temperature regions of coal-fired boilers. As the flue gas is cooled, a series of complex reactions begin to convert Hg0 to ionic mercury (Hg2+) compounds and/or Hg compounds (Hgp) that are in a solid-phase at flue gas cleaning temperatures or Hg that is adsorbed onto the surface ...

  • Tips for turning a coal fired boiler to gas fired boilers

  • U.S. Signals the end of public money for coal-fired power

    U.S. public financing for overseas coal-fired power is likely coming to an end. That’s the clear signal from the U.S. Department of Treasury’s announcement earlier this month. The Treasury Department provided new guidance for multi-lateral development banks’ ...

  • A new way to measure emissions from China’s Coal-Fired Power Plants

    To prevent the most severe impacts of climate change, it is essential to limit fossil fuel use—particularly coal use in power production. The share of coal in global energy consumption is increasing, with ...

  • Exergoeconomic analysis of a Kalina cycle coupled coal–fired steam power plant

    This paper presents exergoeconomic analysis of a Kalina cycle coupled coal–fired steam power plant using specific exergy costing (SPECO) methodology. Cost–balance and auxiliary equations are developed and solved. The results indicate that in the topping cycle, the boiler and the turbine contribute maximum to the formation of product cost. High value of exergoeconomic factor for the boiler ...

  • Coal Fired Boiler two-stage flue gas desulfurization (FGD)

    A major pulp and paper mill located in New England, USA was faced with a control order to reduce SO2 and a schedule challenge to meet the order deadline and steam requirements. In addition, the customer was looking for ways to save reagent cost. Macrotek was selected to design and build two wet FGD systems for two 100,000 lbs/hr medium sulfur coal fired boilers. The design included a two-stage ...

  • Air Quality Permitting for a New Coal-Fired Power Plant: A Timeline

    The high price of natural gas and alternative fuels has made utility companies take a second look at coal as a cheap, plentiful fuel source. For a greenfield plant considering coal, the environmental considerations are significant but not insurmountable. This article discusses the air quality regulations and permitting requirements that must be addressed, from New Source Review to greenhouse gas ...

  • A novel approach for modelling of NOx emission reduction in a tangentially fired coal boiler

    In this research paper, predictive modelling of NOx emission of a 210 MW capacity pulverised coal–fired boiler and combustion parameter optimisation to reduce NOx emission in flue gas is proposed. The effects of oxygen concentration in flue gas, coal properties, coal flow, boiler load, air distribution scheme, flue gas outlet temperature and nozzle tilt were studied. The data collected from ...
