Orimulsion, an emulsion formed from Orinoco bitumen, water, and small amounts of additives, is being used as a primary fuel in electric utility boilers representing about 2000 MWe of generating capacity in Canada, Denmark, Italy, Japan, and Lithuania. In general, compared to other fossil fuels, Orimulsion has higher concentrations of sulfur, vanadium, and nickel and includes a number of other trace metals and radionculides. In response to a 1997 Congressional directive, EPA has developed an Orimulsion Technology Assessment Plan, designed to examine potential environmental and health impacts that may result from combustion of Orimulsion. Described in this paper is the Plan as well as background information on Orimulsion.
