Nuclear methods in coal combustion research

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Nuclear techniques have been used to obtain much of the data concerned with inorganic constituents in coal. The data obtained on concentrations of trace and macroelements in coal and fly ash have been studied by several groups in an effort to understand how inorganics are distributed in coal and how they redistribute themselves upon combustion and later in the environment. Among the questions remaining are the chemical species of elements in the ash and how these elements interact with environmental factors such as soil and water. Briefly, Hs, Cl and Br remain completely in the gas phase when coal is ... continued below

Description

Nuclear techniques have been used to obtain much of the data concerned with inorganic constituents in coal. The data obtained on concentrations of trace and macroelements in coal and fly ash have been studied by several groups in an effort to understand how inorganics are distributed in coal and how they redistribute themselves upon combustion and later in the environment. Among the questions remaining are the chemical species of elements in the ash and how these elements interact with environmental factors such as soil and water. Briefly, Hs, Cl and Br remain completely in the gas phase when coal is burned; As, Cd, Ga, Pb, Se and Zn are concentrated in the fly ash; and 25 other listed elements are incorporated into the slag. Certain other information on trace elements in various coals is given.
