Results of experimental research of thermal decomposition of composite fuels based on 2B brown coal (Borodinskoe deposit) and wastes of timber industry (finely dispersed wood) are presented. Elemental composition of researched fuels has been defined and technically analyzed. Kinetic constants have been calculated within Arrhenius model of the first order. It has been determined that with an increase of wood concentration up to 50% in composite fuel, its energy characteristics decrease by less than 2%, the maximum temperature of fuel thermal decomposition reduces by 9%, while SOx and NOx yield reduces by 50%, and fly ash - by 75%. An effective composite fuel composition of 50%/50% has been established. Results of performed experimental studies illustrate possible applications of composite fuels based on brown coal and wood at thermal power plants.
