Custom reagents reduce slagging
16 November, 2018
What drives slag formation in coal-fired utility-scale furnaces and how can it be dealt with? CoalTreat reagents are applied pre combustion to adjust fuel chemistry and have proved highly effective for solving furnace slag problems, as demonstrated by four case studies. By Mark Pastore, Vice President Technology, Environmental Energy Services, Sandy Hook, CT, USA

Prospects in a carbon constrained world, an MIT view
15 November, 2018
The authors of a new MIT study say that unless nuclear energy is meaningfully incorporated into the global mix of low carbon energy technologies, the challenge of climate change will be much more difficult and costly to address. For nuclear energy to take its place as a major low carbon energy source, however, issues of cost and policy need to be addressed.

Fuel flexibility and future proofing in the era of renewables
15 November, 2018
Operators of gas turbine based power plants, notably in Europe (for example in the Netherlands and in Spain), are looking to future proof their existing assets in an energy market driven by renewables. One option is retrofitting of innovative ultra-low-emissions combustion systems that greatly increase fuel flexibility and allow hydrogen generated via excess renewables to be used as fuel, resulting in significantly reduced carbon intensity.Katharine Koch, PSM*, USA; Peter Stuttaford, Ansaldo Thomassen*, Netherlands; Jeffrey Benoit, PSM*, USA

How Rhenish lignite can reduce power plant mercury emissions
28 October, 2018
For RWE’s lignite-fired power plants, the focus for mercury control is on an innovative entrained flow process and adsorption by activated lignite, called HOK®, produced from Rhenish lignite. HOK® is injected into the flue gas stream, adsorbs both elemental and oxidised mercury and is removed from the flue gas in the electrostatic precipitator together with the fly ash.Knut Stahl, Dr Peter Moser, Ferdinand Steffen, RWE Power AG, Essen, Germany
