A R&D project named "BIOMAX" was established under the EU-funded Framework Programme 5 with the objective to show the viability of modern circulating fluidised bed (CFB) technology in maximising the use of biomass fuels in large-scale heat and power generation. This includes providing means for safe, sufficient and well-controlled biomass fuel supply and handling and for approppriate and safe boiler operation. In addition to research condusted on fuel handling, crushing and receiving systems, experiments have been condusted in both pilot plant scale and at the World's largest 240 Mwe (550 MWth, 194 kg/s, 165 bar, 545 deg. C) biofuel fired circulating fluidised bed boiler plant operated by Ahlholmens Kraft Ltd. Both pilot and full-scale experiments included the whole share range of biomass co-firing from 100% to 10% (enb.). Such a unique experiment matrix is possible to carry out only at plants with capacity to use particularly wide range of fuels.
