Combustion of biomass and emission

Typical uncontrolled emissions from combustion of biomass in boilers

  • Particulates : 12.5 - 15 kg per ton biomass
  • Organic compounds : 1 kg per ton biomass
  • Sulfur dioxide : < 1.5 kg per ton biomass
  • Nitrogen oxides : 5 kg per ton biomass
  • Carbon monoxide : 1 kg per ton biomass

In addition there are ashes to dispose. Particulates are typically removed 99% in industrial boilers.
