41 Oxycombustion of Coal

Monday, October 29, 2012: 8:30 AM
305 (Convention Center )
Description:
Oxycombustion (OC) of coal refers to using oxygen-enriched air as the oxidant. This session will explore the science and engineering opportunities to deploy OC technology. Contributions are invited in the following: 1. recent results on oxycombustion of coal and other solid fuels; 2. burner redesign and retrofit options for OC; 3. ignition, devolatilization and pollutant formation mechanisms during OC; 4. kinetic and CFD modeling of OC processes; 5. engineering options for retrofitting; and, 6. new OC boiler design.
