  • Coal combustion products in Europe - sustainable raw materials for the construction industry

    The production of coal combustion products (CCPs) in all the European member states is estimated to be about 100 million tonnes. The utilisation of CCPs is well established in some European countries, based on long term experience and technical as well as environmental benefits. The CCPs are mainly utilised in the building material and construction industry as a replacement for natural resources. ...

  • Is `clean` coal possible?

    VANCOUVER, April 18, 2007 (GLOBE-Net) - Coal is the world’s most commonly used fuel to produce electrical energy, and will continue as such for some time. Yet it is one of the ’dirtiest’ of all fossil fuels. It is a major source of toxic air pollutants and the leading source of energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Many believe ’clean coal’ technologies will improve the energy efficiency of ...

  • Improving steam power plant efficiency through exergy analysis: effects of altering excess combustion air and stack-gas temperature

    Modifications are examined to increase coal-fired steam power plant efficiency by reducing irreversibilities in the steam generator, including decreasing the fraction of excess combustion air, and/or the stack-gas temperature. Overall-plant energy and exergy efficiencies both increase by 1.4% when the fraction of excess combustion air decreases from 0.4 to 0.15, and by 3.5% when the stack-gas ...

  • Present status and future prospect of clean coal technology in China

    Coal consumption accounts for about two thirds of the primary energy consumption in China. High economic growth has brought about a rapid increase of coal consumption. Low-efficiency combustion of a large amount of coal caused coal-smoke related air pollution. The Chinese government put forward plans to develop clean coal technology in the early 1990s, and has listed it as one of the emphases for ...

  • 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 ...

  • Thermodynamic analysis of an integrated gasification combined cycle power plant: effect of nitrogen supply on system performance

    A comprehensive thermodynamic analysis of a conceptual integrated coal gasification combined cycle power plant is presented. Energy and exergy efficiencies and exergy destructions of each sub–unit are calculated. The effect of nitrogen, which is supplied from the Air Separation Unit (ASU) of the gasification unit to the combustion chamber of the gas turbine (GT) cycle, on system performance is ...

  • E.ON Benelux power station Maasvlakte, Rotterdam - Case Study

    Next Generation Power Production E.ON’s new Maasvlakte power station also known as MPP3 is built in the harbour of the Dutch metropolis Rotterdam. The modern supercritical hard coal fired unit with a capacity of 1100 MW is expected to have a thermal efficiency of more than 46 percent. The new plant built in the vicinity of the existing Maasvlakte station is designed as cogeneration ...

  • Performance analysis of a single cylinder DI diesel engine using different biodiesel

    Biodiesel produced from cottonseed oil is quite a promising alternative fuel for diesel engines. Use of vegetable oils in diesel engines leads to slightly inferior performance and higher smoke emissions due to their high viscosity and carbon residue. But the performance of vegetable oils can be improved by modifying them through the transesterification process. The research work discusses the ...
