Abstract

A bubbling fluidized-bed combustor was used to cofire wood and coal fuels. Wood percentages in the fuel mixture were varied from 0 to 100 percent as the effect of two different wood moisture contents (8.3 and 50% on a dry weight basis) was studied on the emissions of sulfur and nitrogen. The variation in wood moisture content did not appear to be a factor in any reduction in the SO 2 emissions for wood/coal cofiring. Increased wood moisture only slightly diminished the emissions of oxides of nitrogen. Combustion results were similar to previous cofiring results with dry planer shavings.
