Abstract

Promising methods for decreasing anthropogenic emissions due to the combustion of coals of different ranks and coal–water fuel (CWF) and organic coal–water fuel (OCWF) slurries on their basis are considered. The maximum concentrations of the main anthropogenic emissions of sulfur, nitrogen, and carbon oxides (SOx, NOx, and COx) formed upon the combustion of solid fuels in a powdered state and as the components of CWF and OCWF slurries were determined. The concentrations of the most hazardous oxides formed upon the combustion of coals of different ranks (brown and black coals) and CWF and OCWF slurries were compared. The experimental results substantiated the use of CWF and OCWF slurries for emission control in coal-burning power engineering. The addition of a combustible liquid component to a CWF slurry (the production of an OCWF slurry) makes it possible to ensure acceptable environmental and energy characteristics.
