Combustion Efficiency

Combustion efficiency is measured by how much of the heat available in the fuel is released and utilized. Primary indicators of good combustion efficiency are low unburned carbon in the ash, and low emissions of combustion related pollutants, primarily carbon monoxide.
 The AIREALĀ® Combustion System has achieved excellent carbon burnout in the commercial operating facilities. Recent tests on MSW combustion ash demonstrated unturned carbon levels in the 1-2% range.
 High levels of carbon monoxide (CO) in the flue gas is a sign of poor combustion efficiency. The EPA sets a limit of 100 parts per million (ppm) CO in the combustion gases for these types of facilities. The AIREALĀ® technology has consistently exhibited CO emissions averaging between 15 and 40 ppm. Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions are generally 50-60% lower than other combustant technologies without NOx control.
