Fundamental studies of Oxy-fuel Boilers-Phase I, funded by Metso, Sweden & Finland
Client: Metso Power Oy, Finland
Director project: Dr. Sadegh Seddighi
Project associate members: Dr. Sadegh Seddighi
Project type: Engineering, Laboratory/Pilot Plant Implementation
Project collaborator: Fortum Company (Sweden), Chalmers University
Summary of project:
This project which was funded by Scandinavian energy companies of Metso Power and Fortum, aimed at developing and encoding tools for the design and scale-up of oxy-fuel boilers across a wide range of operational conditions. The work comprises fluid dynamics, combustion, and heat transfer and uses expressions that are proposed in this project or derived from the literature, together with experimental data obtained under both oxy-fuel-fired and air-fired conditions.
