Project: Advanced Biomass Combustion Modelling for Clean Energy Production

BIOMODELLING project consortium comprised of six partners, including three higher education establishments: Czestochowa University of Technology (PL), Lappeenranta University of Technology (FI), Chalmers University of Technology (SE), moreover a research institute VTT (FI), an industrial boiler manufacturer Foster Wheeler (FI) and an industrial partner – PGE GiEK S.A. Department Turow Power Plant. The focus of the project was to elaborate and improve modelling methods of a solid biomass combustion with respect to the circulating fluidized bed reactors. In the project modern scientific methods have been used such as: laboratory-scale experiments, computer modelling and full-size industrial measurements. The activities of Czestochowa University of Technology included elaboration of a computer program, making possible calculation of CO2, CO, SO2, and NOx concentration along the boiler’s combustion chamber height. The program is also calculating “in stack” other flue gas components, such as: H2, H2O, O2, CH4, HCN, NH3, NCO, NO, N2O. The program is available in a demo version. It is working under Windows and performing calculation for 261 MWe CFB compact boiler. The model could be adopted to any circulating fluidized bed boiler, firing or co-firing biomass.
