Coal - cRDF co-firing. A review of the Courtaulds demonstration project

Technical Report:

Abstract

The purpose of the Courtaulds project was to demonstrate that pulverised, coarse RDF (cRDF) could be used in conjunction with coal on large chain grate stoker fired industrial boilers. This was one of several cRDF demonstration projects funded by the Department of Energy as part of their ``Waste as a Fuel`` programme. Section 2 presents a brief summary of the demonstration project, highlighting some of technical and operational/managerial problems which were experienced. Section 3 examines the potential for future replication. It concludes that the problems experienced in the demonstration project can be overcome and that the technology offers scope for future replication. That scope depends on the availability of suitable industrial boilers, and a review of this issue is included. Section 4 contains a conceptual design for future facilities to produce a suitable cRDF and to convert chain grate industrial boilers for its co-combustion with coal. These designs were developed by ERL on the basis both of this demonstration project and of parallel developments in cRDF production. Section 5 sets out both the approach and the results of an economic evaluation, which compared waste disposal by transfer to landfill with the production and use of a cRDF.
