Fluidized bed technology is well proven for co-firing of Biomass with coal or sludge or RDF or Municipal Waste and efficient process to achieve the desired level of combustion to reduce GHG (SOx , NOx and CO). United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, co-signed by India (COP21 at Paris), recognizes Bio-mass Co-Firing as a carbon neutral technology for mitigation of carbon emission from coal-based power plants.
CEA on November 24, 2017, issued an advisory to all power plant owners, manufacturers and others stakeholders, based upon the policy document of Ministry of Power to go for Bio-mass utilization through co-firing in in the pulverized coal-fired boilers. (For more information Click Here )
The Seminar will deliberate on:
- Relevance of CFB Boilers for utility power generation with co-combustion of coal with other solid fuels including biomass.
- Supercritical / Ultra – supercritical CFB Boilers
- Combustion of Petcoke – A major concern for Indian industry and Ministry of Environment? How other nations are burning Petcoke and still comply with their environmental emissions norms? (Refer to Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, GoI Gazette dated January 19, 2018)
CFBC TECHNOLOGY SEMINAR 2018 of IPMA will draw expert faculty from India and abroad to share their experience & knowledge to sensitize the industry, utilities, manufacturers, planners, academia, and regulators etc about technological advantages & challenges of setting up coal-based thermal power plants with CFB boilers
- Best for multi-fuel combustion and the ability to use diverse fuels of different quality: Co-Firing of high ash and moist coal, lignite, Petcoke, Solid Municipal Waste and RDF etc with Biomass
Low Emission of (Green House Gases)- Without use of FGD and SCR/ SNCR
- Carbon Monoxide (CO)
- SOx with direct desulphurisation in furnace with limestone
- NOx (due to uniform boiler temperature typically 800oC-900oC)
- Oxyfuel-CFB with carbon capture and storage (CSS)
- Scalability up to 800 MWe. (Several units with Ultra and Supercritical Parameters up to 600 MWe in operation)
- Higher Efficiency with energy saving CFB Boiler Process
- Excellent load following capabilities and part load behavior ensuring reliability and availability
The seminar will provide a platform for participants to learn from experts and become more aware of different aspects of this eco-friendly combustion technology, processes, its applications, and limitations. We would expect to have a gathering of around 125 personnel from different stakeholders to deliberate on all above issues with some takeaways for everyone – as to how we can generate clean power by the firing of coal mixed with Biomass, Petcoke and yet meet the environmental norms.
IPMA brings to the Seminar Samcheok’ s 2000 MW Thermal power plant globally recognized as a Green Power Plant operating at the forefront of technology for energy production. It is a utility-scale CFB plant, equipped with a combination of two 500MWe Ultra critical circulating fluidized bed boilers and one 1,000 MWe Turbine using ultra-supercritical steam (2in1 combined, 257 bars, 603C/603C). The plant meets tighter stack emissions (NOx ≤ 50ppm, SOx ≤ 50ppm - at 6% oxygen) without even using FGD equipment as per Korean Standards.
