High efficiency and low emissions from pf coal power stations has been the drive behind the development of present and future efficient coal combustion technologies. Upgrading coal, capturing CO2, reducing emission of NOx, SO2 and particulate matter, mitigating slagging, fouling and corrosion are the key initiatives behind these efficient coal technologies. This study focuses on a newly developed fuel additive (Silanite™) based efficient coal combustion technology, which addresses most of the aforementioned key points. Silanite™ a finely milled multi-oxide additive when mixed with the coal without the need to change the boiler installation has proven to increase the boiler efficiency, flame temperature with reduction in corrosion, NOx and particulate matter (dust) emissions. The process has been developed through bench, pilot (100kW) and full scale (233 MWth). The process has been found to have a number of beneficial effects that add up to a viable retrofit to existing power plant as demonstrated on the 233MWth boiler tests (under BS EN 12952-15:2003 standard)
