Burning Trees for Electricity Is Actually Dirtier Than Coal

20/02/2015These policies assume that all biomass is carbon neutral so when power plants burn wood instead of coal they dont have to count any of their carbon emissions Trouble is the latest science shows this assumption is false Burning trees and other largediameter wood for electricity is actually dirtier than coal

Pulverized coal

A pulverized coalfired boiler is an industrial or utility boiler that generates thermal energy by burning pulverized coal also known as powdered coal or coal dust since it is as fine as face powder in cosmetic makeup that is blown into the firebox The basic idea of a firing system using pulverised fuel is to use the whole volume of the furnace for the combustion of solid fuels
