Bubbling fluidized bed combustion (BFB) is well applicable to biomass and other alternate fuels. Typical features for these fuels are high volatile content, varying moisture content and, in some cases, a somewhat high alkali and chlorine content. Fortum Engineering has supplied several boiler and power plants based on its in-house BFB boiler technology. The boilers show good performance with high availability and long operating time.
