- The inorganic constituents of coal and their products upon combustion in a furnace can cause a fouling of heat exchanger surfaces. This leads to a number of problems in the generation of electric power including corrosion, pollution, and the reduction of the overall efficiency. The objective of this project is the study of transformations and their kinetics of the inorganic elements upon combustion of a representative number of coals. Considerable data have been accumulated on the final products of the combustion and on elements heavier than phosphorus. Far less data are available on the kinetics of reactions and for elements as light as sodium. This project will address these two points and will be studied in collaboration with groups at Physical Sciences, Inc. and the University of Kentucky. 10 refs., 7 figs.
