Abstract

Increasing use of biomass and waste mixes as fuels in boiler combustion creates new opportunities for clean energy industries. Yet, the wide variety of fuel chemistry with numerous corrosive agents brings also new challenges in boiler design. Metso Power's novel expert system, based on ChemSheet, overcomes these difficulties and gives a fair competitive edge and economic reward to its developers.
