USING PERFECTLY STIRRED REACTOR APPROACH TO MODEL VOCs EMISSIONS IN COAL FİRED POWER STATIONS

Keywords: VOCs, PAHs, Power stations, PSR model, Toxic, Carcinogens
The main objective of this study is to evaluate the emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from coal-fired power stations. A quantitative understanding of the chemistry controlling the formation and destruction of these intermediate species is a prerequisite for the realistic modelling of pollutant formation in flames. Therefore, well investigated skeletal reaction mechanism has been built and introduced into perfectly stirred reactor model in order to accomplish prediction of some of these hazardous important intermediate species. This can be great help in considering lack of experimental VOCs data from fossil fuel fired power stations. Predicted results have been validated against ICSTM Furnace data where possible.
