Fluidized bed combustion (FBC) is an advanced technique for fuel flexible, high efficiency and low emission power generation. In these systems, fuels are combusted as a fluidized bed suspended by jets of air with sorbents that remove harmful emissions such as NOx, SOx and CO2. The editor and contributors provide an up-to-date, comprehensive book on fluidized bed (FB)combustion/gasification technology, with a focus on new emerging carbon capture technologies.
Chapters 1-6 present a general overview of fluidization technology with some historical details, a description of particle characterization methods and particle behavior in a fluidized system, and an overall picture of the properties of bubbling and circulating FBs. The second section (chapters 7-13) provides information on the fundamental research being done on FB combustion and gasification.
In contrast to the first two parts, which have a more fundamental character, the third section (chapters 14-18) is more practically oriented and discusses advances in atmospheric and pressurized boilers for coal, biomass, and waste. Chapters also detail the characteristics of the FB gasification technology and the most recent measurement techniques in FB systems. Part four (chapters 19-22) focus on the emerging carbon capture technologies involving fluidized bed systems, namely oxy-fired combustion, chemical looping combustion, calcium looping for de-carbonation of flue gas, and sorption-enhanced gasification. The book's concluding chapter 23 extends the concepts described in previous parts to other application of FB technology (both in chemical and physical processes) not involving combustion and gasification.
