- Combustion Engineering, Inc. of ABB is one of three contractors for Phase 1 of the US Department of Energy (DOE) four-phase Project for ``Engineering Development of Advanced Coal-Fired Low Emission Boiler Systems`` (LEBS). This is one of two projects in the DOE`s ``Combustion 2000`` Program. The LEBS Project`s primary objective is to limit SOₓ and NOₓ emissions to one-third New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) requirements and particulates to one-half NSPS requirements. The secondary objectives are to meet these emission levels without increasing plant heat rate or cost of electricity, to reduce the amount of waste produced, and to make the waste more readily disposable. The final deliverables will be a design data base that will allow future pulverized coal-fired plants to meet the stated objectives, and a preliminary design of a commercial generating unit. This paper reports the results of Phase 1A, the status of Phase 1B, and plans for future work. Phase 1A was devoted to producing the Management Plan for all four Phases, concept development and evaluation, subsystem preliminary design, design uncertainties analysis, and a research and development plan for Phase 1B. Work in Phase 1B consists of component definition, the preliminary design of a commercial generating unit (CGU), and research and development plans for Phase 2. The contractor(s) selected for Phase 2 will conduct pilot scale testing of advanced subsystems; for Phase 3 they will update the CGU design and engineer a system proof-of-concept test facility (POC); for Phase 4 they will carry out detailed engineering, construction, and testing of the POC.
