What is Clean Coal Combustion Technology (CCCT)?
Clean Coal Combustion Technology makes it possible to use coal
as fuel for producing electricity and / or heat and minimizing
the environmental and habitat (dust, smell) effects which are
a result of burning coal.
CCCT is based on the latest high-tech developments
in coal treatment, combustion technology, boiler design, filter
Limitations of available combustion technology!
The common available and widely used types of “Clean Coal combustion”
, like fluidized bed, circulating fluidized bed, pressurized
fluidized bed, atmospheric-pressure bubbling fluidized bed and
Pulverized Coal, are mostly designed (and working well) if used
for high capacity (150 MW and upwards) power generation. Making
them less applicable for stand-alone use at a factory-site,
a district heating site or in a rural application, in which
situations lower capacities (1 – 50 MWth) are required.
Another downfall of the above mentioned types are their limitations
in the use of coal with a broad quality (and caloric value)
range. They mostly function acceptable to well, i.e. stable
burning, when one is using medium to high grade coal, with low
humidity and low solid component content.
Hence, they use an expensive fuel, which most likely needs to
be dried and/or upgraded prior to use. Unit dimensions, investment
levels and specialized operator requirements are other aspects
which makes is less feasible to use the widely available Clean
Combustion technologies in low power (<50 MWth) applications.
