The work described in this paper is a part of the Department of Energy/Lewis Research Center Advanced Conversion Technology (ACT) Project. The program is a multiple contract effort with funding provided by the DOE and technical management provided by the NASA-Lewis Research Center. Continued development of combustion technology is needed to provide utility and industrial gas turbine engines capable of sustained, environmentally acceptable operation when using minimally processed and synthetic fuels. This paper describes an exploratory development effort to identify, evaluate and demonstrate techniques for controlling emissions of Nox and smoke from combustors of stationary gas turbine engines. Preliminary results indicate rich primary zone staged combustion provides environmentally acceptable operation with residual and/or synthetic coal derived liquid fuels.
