The work described in this paper is a part of the Department of Energy/Lewis Research Center (DOE/LeRC) “Advanced Conversion Technology” (ACT) project. The program is a multiple contract effort with funding provided by the Department of Energy and technical program management provided by NASA. LeRC. Environmentally acceptable operation with minimally processed petroleum based heavy residual and coal derived synthetic fuels requires advanced combustor technology. The technology described in this paper was developed under the DOE/ NASA Low NOx Heavy Fuel Combustor Concept Program (Contract DEN3-145). Novel combustor concepts were designed for dry reduction of thermal NOx, control of NOx from fuels containing high levels of organic nitrogen, and control of smoke from low hydrogen content fuels. These combustor concepts were tested by burning a wide variety of fuels including a middle distillate (ERBS), a petroleum based heavy residual, a coal derived synthetic (SRC-II), and various ratios of blends of these fuels.
