Title: Conceptual design of an AFBC electric power generating plant. Final report, Volume II: program description

Abstract

The US Department of Energy (DOE) awarded a contract to Burns and Roe, Inc., in January 1977 for the Conceptual Design of an Atmospheric Fluidized-Bed Combustion (AFBC) Electric Power Generating Plant. The results of an Interim Report, issued in March 1978, indicate that fluidized-bed technology, as presently developed, offers a potential near term solution to the problems associated with the use of noncompliance coals that may be economically attractive to the electric power utilities. Its successful implementation, thus, has great potential economic benefits to the industry as well as the strategic interests of the country in reducing the dependence on petroleum products. Based on the findings presented in the Interim Report, DOE authorized Burns and Roe to proceed with further detailed investigations in a number of areas. This Final Report presents the results of this two-year program. It includes information on coal and limestone pretreatment, sulfur capture by coal ash, AFBC boiler design, economic analysis, and spent material handling system.
