The Institute for Chemical Processing of Coal has been carrying out research and development works on coal gasification technology, biomass and waste for many years. Currently, research on the use of CO2 in pressure gasification of waste biomass in a fluidized bed is carried out as part of the Heat-to-Fuel project, and selected results have been presented in the next publication of the Institute’s employees.
The Institute for Chemical Processing of Coal takes part in an international project entitled “Enhanced catalytic fast pyrolysis of biomass for maximum production of high-quality biofuels” (the acronym EnCat) as part of the Era-Net Bioenergy program. The project consortium consists of eight partners from four European countries. Among them are both academic partners, scientific institutes and industrial units.
Blue coal – low-carbon coal fuel – developed jointly by employees of Polchar Sp. z o.o. and IChPW, still finds interest among individual users of solid fuel heating devices, giving very good effects of reducing emissions to the atmosphere. We forecast that its sales will increase further in the next heating season.
This month we present a paper authored by R. Wasielewski, M. Wojtaszek and A. Plis from Institute for Chemical Processing of Coal. The paper entitled „Investigation of fly ash from co-combustion of alternative fuel (SRF) with hard coal in a stoker boiler” was published in Archives of Environmental Protection.
