This week, the IFRF Handbook publishes a further Combustion File relating to the properties of Black Liquor.

Black Liquor is a by- product of, and fuel for the papermaking process. In order to be burned effectively, appropriate approaches to characterising the combustion properties of the fuel have been established. They are described in CF200.

This Combustion File has been authored by Mikael Forssen of Abo Academy in Finland. Our thanks to Professor Mikko Hupa, Vice President of the IFRF, for refereeing this Combustion File.

IFRF members may read or download this Combustion File at www.handbook.ifrf.net, by selecting ‘New Combustion Files’ after accepting the disclaimer screen. Other Combustion Files on related themes may be found by using the links built into the Combustion File, or by searching the Handbook with the  keywords like ‘fuel’ or ‘liquor’, including examples that are open to non IFRF members.
