Barracuda Virtual Reactor: Clean Coal Brochure

Clean Coal

Engineering software for clean coal technology.  Improve the operation of your CFB combustor:

  • Fuel-specific inputs (composition, volatiles and moisture release)
  • Coal only or co-firing with bio-materials
  • Fuel and air mixing and residence time distributions
  • Thermal profiles
  • Influences of secondary air jets
  • Wear on internals, walls, cyclones and other components

Clean Coal R&D and Pilot Plants:

  • Chemical Looping Combustor (CLC)
  • Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Units
  • Sulfur removal from flue gas
  • Entire CFB loop in a single model enables system design optimization
