Emissions modeling of fluidised bed co-combustion of poultry litter and peat
Henihan, Anne Marie; Leahy, Martin J.; Leahy, James J.; Cummins, E.; Kelleher, B.P.
Gaseous emissions from the fluidised bed co-combustion of 50% w/w chicken litter and peat were monitored and recorded. Emission data were used to create a dispersion model for a proposed site on a poultry farm in Ireland. Variables within the combustion unit influenced both combustion and emission levels of pollutants such as SO2 and NOx, CO. Concentrations of atmospheric pollutants decreased with use of the correct ratio between fluidising and secondary air. Dispersion modelling of combustion at a proposed poultry unit predicted that ground level concentrations for the set of emissions data would be below the limits and guidelines set by air quality standards.
