Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


Two major problems arising from the burning of high-ash and high-sulfur coal are; (1) erosion of boiler accessories, and (2) environment and health hazards. The mitigation of these is the main objective of the present study, by employing ultrasonic coal-wash on high-ash and high-sulfur coal. This method can be used to control particulate and sulfur emissions prior to coal combustion. This investigation (USCW) has been primarily focused on these issues. Outcome of these studies has been presented earlier in this thesis. The issue of scale-up to production quantities will be discussed in this chapter.
