Results are presented from a test program to characterize the air pollution emissions from the combustion of coal in a fluidized bed combustion and to assess the potential of fluidized-bed combustion for air pollution control. These emissions were monitored under a comparatively large number of different conditions. Efforts were made to reduce emissions of oxides of sulfur by the use of limestone-based sorbents and to determine the conditions most favorable for the reduction. Emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitric oxide and hydrocarbon were monitored continuously with periodic samples taken for measurement of particulates and wet test determination of SO(x) and NO(x). When conditions most favorable for air pollution control were established on a pilot scale, the conditions were reproduced in tests with the fluidized-bed boiler module. (Author)
