Abstract : This report is an evaluation of (1) boiler performance, i.e., boiler efficiency and combustion properties; and (2) environmental emissions, i.e., electrostatic precipitator performance, particulate emissions (size and resistivity), gaseous emissions (SOx, NOx, CO and HC) and trace organics; while burning the following three fuel combinations at maximum boiler capacity; (1) 100% coal, (2) 40/60 refuse-derived fuel (RDF) to coal; and (3) 100% RDF.
