    Description

    The aim of the project is to study the role of ash deposits in high temperature corrosion of superheater materials in biomass and refuse fired combined heat and power plants. The project includes two main activities:
    -An chemical characterisation of ash deposits collected from a major number of biomass and refuse fired combined heat and power plant boilers.
    -Laboratory exposures and metallurgical examinations of material specimens with ash deposits in well-defined gas environments with HCl and SO2 in a furnace.
    The important corrosion reactions will be identified by correlation of thermodynamical calculations and experimental analysis results.
