Effect of Blending ratio on Co-Combustion of Coal and Biomass Through Emission Analysis
The environmental problems caused by industrial pollutants and global warming are on the rise. There is a need to develop a technology for reducing harmful pollutants. The co-combustion is getting serious attention by the scientists regarding its key facets to reduce the environmental pollutants. Its function is based on utilization of biomass with coal. In this work different types of biomass were used with coal samples to identify the suitable methodology. The biomass resource fulfills the requirement with reducing environmental pollutants and overcome energy crises. The ratios of biomass with coal samples were analyzed using stack gas analyzer. The banana tree waste (BTW) was found to be effective for reducing CO2 and CO emission. While, Cow dung manure (CDM) was found to be efficacious to decrease NOx. LC 80%+BTW 20% for SO2 and CDM for NO. To conclude, CDM and BTW decreases the emissions keeping blending ratio 80:20 with lignite coal to biomass in co-combustion respectively.
