FUELS OF OPPORTUNITY CHARACTERISTICS AND USES IN

David Tillman, N. Harding

ISBN 0080441629
Pages 322

Description
As electricity generators and process industries are increasingly seeking less expensive fuels for the generation of electricity and process heat, there is an ever-increasing industry-led emphasise on exploring the possibility of utilising opportunity fuels. This book considers a diverse range of opportunity fuels and their application by addressing the following fundamental issues:



* What are the specific fuel properties of these opportunity fuels?

* What are the combustion/conversion characteristics of these fuels fired alone or in combination with conventional fossil fuels?

* How are they best applied in energy settings?

* What are the technical and environmental consequences of their use?

In considering these fuels the book presents detailed updated information on fuel characterization approaches and fuel utilization technologies.

Contents
Overview of Opportunity Fuels; Petroleum Coke and Petroleum-Based Products as Opportunity Fuels; Coal-Water Slurries and Related Waste Coal Opportunity Fuels; Woody Biomass Opportunity Fuels; Herbaceous and Agricultural Biomass Opportunity Fuels; Tire-Derived Fuel as an Opportunity Fuel; Gaseous and Liquid Opportunity Fuel
