Abstract
The goal of this research is to develop low-cost liquid fuel from Iowa coal and limestone resources for use in fluidized-bed combustors. Several mixture formulation parameters have been investigated to determine their effects on fuel rheology and combustion characteristics. These parameters include coal particle size, limestone particle size, and ca/s ratio. It appears that acceptable coal-water mixtures for fluidized-bed combustion can be produced from coarse grinds of coal and limestone without the use of surfactants or stabilizers.
