oa CSIR Science Scope - Converting waste to energy through fluidised bed processing : commercial ventures with CSIR roots

Volume 6, Issue 3
  • ISSN :



Fluidised bed combustion has been used to burn coal for many years, but using the experience gained at the CSIR to convert industrial waste to energy gives an important new slant to existing technology. CSIR research and development (R&D) activities in this area, span the past three decades. The earliest developments were in low-grade coal combustion, but fluidised bed technology has since been applied to designs for a hot gas generator, a biomass sludge boiler, a high-sulphur pitch incinerator and an industrial deodoriser.
