    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    Deposit formation and corrosion were investigated during co-firing of REF with biomass in a bubbling fluidized bed combustion unit. Two different tube materials were tested. The deposit layers with the two materials had different structures but the thickness and the composition were similar. Deposit formation mechanisms are proposed.
