A technoeconomic analysis of the suitability of using suspended organic coal-water fuels (OCWF) of various component compositions was performed to determine the parameters that illustrate the priority of individual components and of the suspensions as a whole from the point of cost, ignition delay time, minimally adequate oxidizer temperature, combustion duration, and combustion heat of OCWF. The obtained data can be used to optimize the choice of the type and concentration of OCWF components that ensure efficient utilization of this type of fuel. An analysis was made of the feasibility of expanding the raw materials base for development of OCWF combustion technology.
