The proceedings of TOTeM 39 – Oxy Coal Combustion have been published on the IFRF website and are available for perusal and download by IFRF Members.

As part of the EC co-funded RELCOM Project, IFRF organised an Oxy-coal Combustion TOTeM on June 18th and 19th 2013 on the premises of ENEL Research and Engineering in Pisa.

Topics included:

  • Flame ignition and stabilisation
  • Heterogeneous phenomena in oxy/coal combustion
  • Radiation and heat transfer modelling
  • Coal characterisation in oxy/RFG
  • Ash and Heavy Metals
  • Explosion issues in Oxy-Coal Systems
  • High Temperature Corrosion

Following the presentations, the meeting Chairman facilitated a panel discussion on Research needs for Oxy-coal Combustion.
