The reducing conditions mean that nitrogen oxide production is minimized too. Fluidized Bed Combustion and Coal Gasification 51 The gasification process can be taken a stage further by reacting the syngas over a catalyst with more steam. This process, called the water shift reaction, converts the carbon monoxide in the syngas into a mixture of hydrogen and carbon dioxide through the reaction: CO 1 H2 O 5 CO2 1 H2 Any methane present will also be converted into hydrogen and carbon dioxide. The final gas is now a mixture of carbon dioxide and hydrogen with some impurities.

Incomplete combustion of the carbon in coal may also lead to significant levels of carbon monoxide within the flue gases. Both carbon monoxide and organic fragments can cause environmental degradation as well as affecting human health if allowed to escape. Environmental regulations require that as far as possible these materials are removed from coal-fired power plant flue gases before the latter are released into the atmosphere. Different techniques have been developed for the most important of these; sulfur scrubbers for removing sulfur compounds, low NOx burners and catalytic reduction systems to remove nitrogen oxides, and fabric filters and electrostatic precipitators to control dust emissions.

SUB-CRITICAL AND SUPERCRITICAL BOILERS The heat released during coal combustion is partly radiant heat and partly convective heat. Radiant heat is captured by water running in tubes within the walls of the combustion chamber. Further collections of tubes are placed in the path of the flue gases exiting the combustion chamber and as water passes from one set of tubes to another its 3 This will affect the overall temperature difference between steam turbine entrance and exit, a parameter that controls overall Carnot cycle efficiency.
