The report gives results of tests performed to determine the effects of mixed fuel firing on boiler emissions and electrostatic precipitator (ESP) performance, using shredded municipal wastes as a supplementary fuel in a 140 megawatt coal-fired utility boiler. Tests were performed at boiler loads of 75 to 140 megawatts when firing coal-only and when firing fuel mixtures which provided solid waste heat inputs to the boiler of 9 to 27%. Test measurements included: total particulate, particulate size distribution, O2, CO2, CO, NO, SO2, SO3, C1-, Hgv, in situ fly ash resistivity, and ESP operating conditions. Firing mixed fuels caused no statistically significant changes in gaseous pollutant emissions. ESP performance was significantly affected by the fuel mix (coal and waste). Additional tests will require to establish the magnitude of performance losses which may result from mixed-fuel firings.
