Detailed chemical kinetic modelling has been used to study the formation of nitrogen oxides at gas turbine combustion chamber conditions. A biomass-derived gasification gas from an air-blown IGCC plant has been used as fuel. The aim has been to give guidance of operating conditions in the gas turbine combustion chamber that lead to minimum NOx emissions when an air staging technique is applied. The sensitivity of NOx formation to various operating and mixing parameters is illustrated. The work belongs to a larger international project partly funded by the European Commission through its Joule Programme.
