01/05/2010 · The burning of Polish coal and biomass particles at 1273 K are compared in Fig. 2. Biomass particles burn much faster than coal particles of the same size due to lower density, higher amount of volatiles and greater char reactivity. Thus it is possible to use larger biomass particles in the boiler.
In common with conventional combustion systems, biomass- burning boilers can emit a number of pollutants including nitrogen dioxide (NO 2), particles (PM) and sulphur dioxide (SO 2). The mix and amounts of pollu-tion produced will depend on the size and design of the boiler, the quali-

01/10/2003 · 1.. IntroductionNumerous epidemiological studies have shown a correlation between negative health effects and increased concentrations of particulate matter in the ambient air (e.g., ).Because of this correlation and the increasing use of biomass combustion, the particle emission from biomass combustion, particularly that of ultrafine particles, needs further investigation.
Carbon emissions from burning biomass for energy
However, while the threshold for triggering PSD review for a fossil-fueled boiler 250 mmbtu/hr or greater is emission of 100 tons of a criteria pollutant, the threshold for triggering PSD review for a biomass burning facility is 250 tons. This means that a facility burning biomass can emit two and a half times the amount of pollution that a

Biomass burning: a major carbon polluter Its often claimed that biomass is a low carbon or carbon neutral fuel, meaning that carbon emitted by biomass burning wont contribute to climate change. But in fact, biomass burning power plants emit 150% the CO 2 of coal, and 300 400% the CO of natural gas, per unit energy produced.
