Characterization of ash deposits from municipal solid waste (MSW) incineration plants
Detailed operational mapping of a grate fired Biomass combustion plant for improved combustion process control
Biomass combustion plants in Norway are facing stricter emission regulations and lower profitability, mostly due to low energy prices. Hence, performance optimization through improved combustion process control and/or retrofitting becomes very attractive to existing plants. However, the trial and er...
Ash deposits characterization in a large-scale municipal waste-to-energy incineration plant
Chemical and mineralogical compositions of deposits from a municipal solid waste incineration plant in Oslo, Norway, have been characterized. Ash deposits are analysed via a combination of scanning electron microscopy equipped with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (SEM-EDX), X-ray powder diffrac...
Composition and morphology of ash produced in a Waste-to-Energy (WtE) plant
In the present work, the chemical and mineralogical compositions of ashes collected from a Waste-to-Energy (WtE) plant are characterized and evaluated. The ash samples are collected vertically from bottom to top of the right side wall of the primary combustion chamber. The collected ash samples incl...
Investigation of Rye Straw Ash Sintering Characteristics and the Effect of Additives
The understanding of ash sintering during combustion of agricultural residues is far from complete, because of the high heterogeneity of the content and composition of ash forming matters and the complex transformation of them. In order to make agricultural residues competitive fuels on the energy m...
Status and perspectives of technological advances in the forest bioenergy value chain
Life-cycle assessment of a Waste-to-Energy plant in central Norway: Current situation and effects of changes in waste fraction composition
Waste-to-Energy (WtE) plants constitute one of the most common waste management options to deal with municipal solid waste. WtE plants have the dual objective to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and simultaneously to produce useful energy (heat and/or power). Energy from WtE is gaining s...
