Title:
TG-FTIR pyrolysis of coal and secondary biomass fuels: Determination of pyrolysis kinetic parameters for main species and NOx precursors 
Abstract:
Co-firing of secondary biomass fuels with coal in coal-fired pulverized fuel boilers is facing increased application in large-scale power production. Fundamental knowledge on the thermochemical behavior of biomass and waste fuels is still lacking, especially regarding the release of the fuel bound nitrogen. Characterization of chicken litter (CL), biomass mix (BM) and meat and bone meal (MBM) and an HV coal blend was performed using TG-FTIR analysis. Three heating rate profiles were applied (10,...    »
