ABSTRACT:
The need for finding renewable sources of energy together with the necessity of searching for new technologies to reduce the negative impact of waste accumulation has led to the possibility of using biomass as an alternate fuel, especially in electric utilities. Most of the industrial sources of pollution come from coal-fired power plants, which necessitate the need to find ways to decrease the Greenhouse gas emissions from these. Also, the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol and the tightening environmental regulations means that by the year 2008, countries would need to implement measures to meet these standards. One of the options that need to be considered is the application of cofiring technologies to coal fired power plants. In this paper, we seek to review the various cofiring technologies available and also at the methods by which these standards could be met.
