Title: Recent circulating fluid bed (CFB) boiler projects in the U. S. and Europe

Lurgi Chemie and Huettentechnik has developed the circulating fluid bed process for solid fuel combustion and steam generation. This process has been commercially proven at Luenen, West Germany. Lurgi Chemie is also currently building two additional CFB boilers in Germany which will produce 595,000 pph and 331,000 pph of steam, respectively. In the U.S., Lurgi Corporation and Combustion Engineering have signed an agreement to jointly design, manufacture and sell CFB plants in the U.S. and Canada. The circular fluid bed process itself is a system which can burn a wide variety of inexpensive, low grade solid fules efficiently, economically and in an environmentally acceptable manner. The details of these CFB boilers are examined in this article.
