Combustion of Pulverised Coal in a Mixture of Oxygen and Recycled Flue Gas

Book Description

Combustion of Pulverised Coal in a Mixture of Oxygen and Recycled Flue Gas focuses on a niche technology, combustion of coal in an oxygen rich environment, which is one approach to obtaining ‘clean coal,’ by making it easier to capture carbon that is released in the combustion process. Toporov’s book breaks ground on covering the key fundamentals of oxycoal technologies, which have not yet been covered in this depth.
