The catalytic effects of iron, aluminum or silicon on the formation of NOX precursors (HCN, NH3 and HNCO) and HCl during wheat straw pyrolysis were studied using a thermogravimetric analyzer (TG) coupled with a Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer in argon atmosphere. The results show that the presence of iron, aluminum or silicon decreases conversion of straw-N into NH3 with the sequence of Fe>Si>Al. The iron or silicon addition suppresses N-conversion into HCN and HNCO, and the aluminum addition has no notable influence on HCN emission during pyrolysis. The share of N-conversion to NH3 and HCN increases, but that to HNCO and NO decreases a little in the presence of added iron, aluminum or silicon. The addition of SiO2 results in the highest HCl removal efficiency. © Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary 2009.

The Ontario Hydro Method (OHM) was used to sample and analyze the mercury concentration in flue gas before and after ESP and WFGD in a 300 MW power plant. Mercury content in coal, bottom slag, fly ash of ESP, adsorbent (limestone) and desulfurization product (gypsum) was detected by DMA80. Mercury mass balance was calculated based on the online measurements through the boiler system. Factors affecting the distribution, transformation and removal of mercury in flue gas were discussed. The results show that the gaseous mercury (Hg0 and Hg2+) in flue gas accounts for about 95% of total mercury, while mercury in the bottom ash can be neglected. More than 95% of Hgp and a little gaseous phase mercury (Hg0 and Hg2+)were removed by ESP. The efficiencies to remove total mercury by ESP range from 12.77% to 17.38%. A removal efficiency for Hg2+(g) reaches up to 79.93%~90.53% by WFGD, however, the content of Hg0 after WFGD increases because part of oxidized mercury is reduced to elemental mercury during WFGD. The efficiencies to remove total mercury by WFGD range from 9.68% to 29.36%. ESP and WFGD can remove all of the Hgp and a majority of Hg2+ with a total mercury removal efficiency of 25.38%~38.38%. In general, the demercuration in the conventional devices of ESP and WFGD is not high, which perhaps is owing to the lower concentration of Cl in feed coal.

The present work reports studies on the mixing and combustion characteristics of cotton stalk with 10-100 mm in length in FBC. Experiments on a cold model show that cotton stalk cannot fluidize, and adding bed material can improve the fluidization condition. Cotton stalk can mix well with 0.6-1 mm alumina at fluidization number N = 3-7. However, when the fluidization number is higher more than 7, the mixing bed will exist a little segregation comparing with N = 3-7. Thermogravimetric experiments show that cotton stalk can be ignited easily at a lower temperature, and its devolatilization and combustion are quick. Fluidized-bed combustion of cotton stalk was tested in a 0.2 MW th test facility. According to the temperature distribution along the bed height, when the primary and secondary air is adapted cotton stalk can be burned stably in the fluidized bed. During pure cotton stalk combustion tests, silica sand and alumina are used as bed material to compare their agglomeration characteristics. SEM/EDX analysis on agglomerate samples after combustion about 38 h suggests that the high alkali metals content causes the formation of the coating around silica sand particles. The coating consists of compounds with low-melting temperature results in agglomeration of silica sand particles. By contrast, alumina is difficult to react with alkali metals from biomass ash, and the agglomeration of alumina was not found at 910 °C. It is found that alumina is more favorable than silica sand particle for use in a fluidized bed in cotton stalk combustion. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The release behavior tests of NOx precursors from wheat straw during pyrolysis in argon and gasification in 5%O2/95%Ar and 5%CO2/95%Ar were performed using a thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA) coupled with a Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer. The results show that heating rate and particle size have substantial effects on the selectivity of N-conversion due to the selectivity of cracking of cyclic amides and the secondary reaction influencing the formation of NH3, HCN and HNCO. The atmosphere influences the N-selectivity to HCN, NH3, NO and HNCO. The formation of HCN and NH3 in 5%O2/95%Ar is a result of competition among the opposing effects of O2. The presence of O2 promotes the yields of HCN and HNCO evidently, and HNCO seems to be a favourable product from biomass-N compared in Ar atmosphere although HCN yield is a little bigger than that of HNCO. The use of CO2 reduces the formation of HCN, the yield of NH3 keeps essentially constant compared in Ar, and the emission of HNCO is suppressed. NH3 seems to be a favourable product from biomass-N in 5%CO2/95%Ar. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "China SCR Denitration Catalyst Industry Report, 2016-2020" report to their offering. Catalyst is the core of the SCR flue gas denitration technology, occupying about 40% of total cost of investments into SCR flue gas denitration system. During 2012-2014, the continuous denitration transformation of thermal power plants stimulated China's demand growth for SCR denitration catalyst, with the demand exceeding 250,000 cubic meters in 2014. However, the demand declined in 2015 as renovation work drew a close, then picked up in 2016, and is expected to see steady growth in the next few years. SCR denitration catalyst is divided into cellular, plate and corrugated types, of which the former two ones prevail in the current Chinese market, while the latter is rare. Based on demand, cellular SCR denitration catalyst held a market share of 64.4% in 2015, marking a dominant position. However, most companies prefer plate-type denitration catalyst which is more suitable for China's common medium and high-ash-content coal-fired conditions when the existing cellular SCR denitration catalyst expires. Therefore, the plate-type denitration catalyst will see a conspicuously growing market share in the next few years and stand at 43.9% or so by 2020. With the increasing demand for flue gas denitration in China, SCR denitration catalyst enterprises have been expanding in scale. In 2016, there were more than 10 SCR denitration catalyst producers each with annual capacity of over 20,000 cubic meters in China; 3 enterprises had the annual capacity of over 50,000 cubic meters apiece, occupying one-third of the total capacity cumulatively. The report highlights the following: - China's SCR denitration catalyst capacity, output, demand and structure, price trend, corporate competition, denitration catalyst regeneration market and potentials, etc.; - China's titanium dioxide (an upstream raw material of SCR denitration catalyst) supply, demand and price trend; status quo of downstream thermal power denitrationinstallation, cement, glass, coke, diesel vehicles and the like; - Operation and SCR denitration catalyst business of 6 global and 15 Chinese key SCR denitration catalyst manufacturers. 4 Upstream and Downstream of SCR Denitration Catalyst in China - Wuxi Huaguang New Power Environmental Protection Technology Co., Ltd.

In order to study the influence of initial temperature, oxygen content, and flow ratio of reductant and flue gas on selective non-catalytic reduction denitration (SNCR) systematically, a non-isothermal SNCR system was constructed. With a peak value of 70% in temperature range of 1273 and 1323K, the NOx reduction efficiency goes up and then down with temperature increasing. When the temperature is lower than 1250K, NOx reduction efficiency increases with the oxygen content increasing. However, when the temperature is higher than 1250K, NOx reduction efficiency decreases with the oxygen content increasing. When the oxygen content is 2.5%, the maximum denitration efficiency is approximate 85.4%; When the temperature is lower than 1 250 K, the denitration reaction is located in the temperature control zone, and the NOx reduction efficiency decreases with the increase of flow ratio of reductant and flue gas. However, when the temperature is higher than 1 250 K, the denitration reaction is located in the diffusion control zone, and the NOx reduction efficiency increases with the flow ratio increasing. When the flow ratio is 5.0, the maximum denitration efficiency is about 79%; The research results is beneficial to the system optimization of SNCR in practice. © 2016 Chin. Soc. for Elec. Eng.
