A total of five combustion tests utilizing water injection for control of NO, emissions have been conducted on three types of coal-derived liquid (CDL) fuels from the H-Coal and SRC II processes along with a shale-derived liquid (SDL) fuel supplied by the Radian Corporation. Actual testing was performed in a 0.14 m diameter gas-turbine-type combustor. For comparative purposes, each run with a synthetic liquid fuel was preceded by a baseline run utilizing No. 2 distillate oil. The effectiveness of water injection was found to decrease as the fuel-bound nitrogen (FBN) content of the synthetic liquids increased.
