Fluidization, combustion and emission behavior of biomass in fluidized bed combustion units
Gaseous components were measured over the height and the cross section inside a circulating fluidized bed riser with a thermal power of 60 kW. The combustion behavior of lignite (German brown coal), hard coal, biomass (China reed), and sewage sludge was investigated. The burn-out behavior was investigated by in-situ and real time measurement of the oxygen consumption using solid electrolyte sensor probes within a bubbling fluidized bed combustor with 15 kW thermal power. Non-uniform oxygen concentration profiles were found over the small riser cross-section which differed for the various fuels. The feed location and the fuel distribution also influences the horizontal oxygen profile. The reasons for the non-uniformity of the horizontal oxygen concentration profile are the combustion of volatile matter and the recirculation of char near the walls. A simulation model was developed to calculate the hydrodynamics and the oxygen consumption for the difference fuels inside the CFBC riser.
