- Previous studies at UIUC have shown that natural gas co-firing with coal has the effect of sulfur retention in the ash, and researchers have suggested that co-firing could reduce ash deposition problems. This project will study (1) the overall sulfur retention as a function of combustion conditions (temperature, coal type, residence time, etc.), (2) the effects of types of sulfur species and sulfur transformations (pyrite, organic, sulphates, etc.) on sulfur retention, and (3) the transformation of ash constituents important to fouling (iron, magnesium, potassium, etc.). The Drop Tube Furnace Facility (DTFF) is to be used for this study.
