    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    In an optimal situation, co-combustion of biofuel with fossil fuels derivs benefits from both fuel types and also some extra advantages. These could be e.g. the reactions between different chemical elements originating from biofuel and fossil fuel. This publication provides information on biomass characteristics, fuel handling and pre-treatments, different types of co-combustion technologies, the challenges of co-combustion sets to boiler operations, emissions and research and testing. A short description on the following biofuels is included: straw, wood fuels, recycled fuels and olive oil production residues. Some case examples of axisting co-combustion plants are given.
