This paper discusses the results obtained from the rich-quench-lean (RQL) combustion system running on distillate fuel and coal water slurry (CWS). Estimates of fuel bound nitrogen (FBN) yield indicate that rich lean combustion is successful in reducing the yield from coal water slurry fuel to between 8% and 12%. Some improvements in combustion efficiency are required when burning coal water slurry to reduce carbon monoxide and unburned hydrocarbons to acceptable levels. These improvements are achievable by increasing the lean zone residence time. Further testing is planned to investigate the effects of residence time in more detail.

The planned deposition, erosion, and corrosion (DEC) testing will evaluate alternative approaches for protection from deposition, erosion, and corrosion of turbines operating with coal derived fuels.
