Active Energy said that the finished fuel, which can be delivered in a range of different compacted formats (pellets, granules, briquettes or bales), contains similar thermal and friability characteristics to coal, enabling it to immediately be used in existing coal-fired power stations without costly retro-fitting, reconstruction or output losses.
Commercial and test burn results demonstrate that it dramatically increases the friability of the slag and bottom ash, facilitating easy removal with existing soot blowers, resulting in an overall reduction of maintenance costs due to shorter and less frequent outages.
