Coal-Biomass Combustion Using A Pilot-Scale Combustion Rig
Assignment title: Assessment of coal-biomass combustion using a pilot-scale combustion rig
The owner of a coal-fired power plant is keen to understand the challenges involved in switching from pure coal (as current) to co-firing coal with 5% biomass with the eventual plan being to be blending in waste-derived fuels as a complimentary feedstock. You are tasked with carrying out an experimental trial to assess fuel feeding rates, gas composition (particularly emissions-related) and mass balance of materials using a coal and 5% biomass mix. The
data obtained from the experimental work will need to be reported, with the data supporting and conclusions and recommendations being made. This will be in the form of a technical consultancy report which outlines the
background (including the review of current understanding), your methodology, results, critical discussion and conclusions/recommendations. The report should include a mass balance analysis from the experiment, with a
discussion comparing the results with other findings in scientific literature.
The report should discuss the implications of blending 5% biomass into the coal feedstock, and then speculate on the feeding system challenges and likely co-firing performance if waste-derived fuels were also added to the
feedstock. The waste-derived fuels aspect will assume that the fuel is typical of refuse-derived fuel [RDF], so you will need to research the range of composition and physicochemical properties of RDF. You should provide an analysis of the feedstock going from 100% coal, to 95:5 coal to biomass, 90:5:5 coal/biomass/RDF and then 25% RDF (i.e. 70% coal, 5% biomass). You will need to consider the legislation the plant will need to comply with when
using waste as a fuel.
You will need to record data throughout the experiment to complete a mass balance. There will be a seminar on Friday to assist you.
Your report should follow a strict format of:
- A title page with your name, student number, then,
- 2000 words, including:
- Conclusions and recommendations
- The list of references used (correctly cited within the text);
- Minimum font size 10 (Arial, Calibri or Times);
- All margins should be at least 2 cm;
- Single column format;
- All figures and tables should be clear, in a consistent format and NOT embedded within the text;
- Figures and tables do not count towards the word count; however, captions do;
- All figures and tables must be clearly referenced if taken or derived from another source
Ensure that all references are corrected cited and are from credible sources. Peer-reviewed journal articles are encouraged, company or government reports are acceptable, whereas websites are not.
QUALITY OF RESPONSE NO RESPONSE POOR / UNSATISFACTORY SATISFACTORY GOOD EXCELLENT Content (worth a maximum of 50% of the total points) Zero points: Student failed to submit the final paper. 20 points out of 50: The essay illustrates poor understanding of the relevant material by failing to address or incorrectly addressing the relevant content; failing to identify or inaccurately explaining/defining key concepts/ideas; ignoring or incorrectly explaining key points/claims and the reasoning behind them; and/or incorrectly or inappropriately using terminology; and elements of the response are lacking. 30 points out of 50: The essay illustrates a rudimentary understanding of the relevant material by mentioning but not full explaining the relevant content; identifying some of the key concepts/ideas though failing to fully or accurately explain many of them; using terminology, though sometimes inaccurately or inappropriately; and/or incorporating some key claims/points but failing to explain the reasoning behind them or doing so inaccurately. Elements of the required response may also be lacking. 40 points out of 50: The essay illustrates solid understanding of the relevant material by correctly addressing most of the relevant content; identifying and explaining most of the key concepts/ideas; using correct terminology; explaining the reasoning behind most of the key points/claims; and/or where necessary or useful, substantiating some points with accurate examples. The answer is complete. 50 points: The essay illustrates exemplary understanding of the relevant material by thoroughly and correctly addressing the relevant content; identifying and explaining all of the key concepts/ideas; using correct terminology explaining the reasoning behind key points/claims and substantiating, as necessary/useful, points with several accurate and illuminating examples. No aspects of the required answer are missing. Use of Sources (worth a maximum of 20% of the total points). Zero points: Student failed to include citations and/or references. Or the student failed to submit a final paper. 5 out 20 points: Sources are seldom cited to support statements and/or format of citations are not recognizable as APA 6th Edition format. There are major errors in the formation of the references and citations. And/or there is a major reliance on highly questionable. The Student fails to provide an adequate synthesis of research collected for the paper. 10 out 20 points: References to scholarly sources are occasionally given; many statements seem unsubstantiated. Frequent errors in APA 6th Edition format, leaving the reader confused about the source of the information. There are significant errors of the formation in the references and citations. And/or there is a significant use of highly questionable sources. 15 out 20 points: Credible Scholarly sources are used effectively support claims and are, for the most part, clear and fairly represented. APA 6th Edition is used with only a few minor errors. There are minor errors in reference and/or citations. And/or there is some use of questionable sources. 20 points: Credible scholarly sources are used to give compelling evidence to support claims and are clearly and fairly represented. APA 6th Edition format is used accurately and consistently. The student uses above the maximum required references in the development of the assignment. Grammar (worth maximum of 20% of total points) Zero points: Student failed to submit the final paper. 5 points out of 20: The paper does not communicate ideas/points clearly due to inappropriate use of terminology and vague language; thoughts and sentences are disjointed or incomprehensible; organization lacking; and/or numerous grammatical, spelling/punctuation errors 10 points out 20: The paper is often unclear and difficult to follow due to some inappropriate terminology and/or vague language; ideas may be fragmented, wandering and/or repetitive; poor organization; and/or some grammatical, spelling, punctuation errors 15 points out of 20: The paper is mostly clear as a result of appropriate use of terminology and minimal vagueness; no tangents and no repetition; fairly good organization; almost perfect grammar, spelling, punctuation, and word usage. 20 points: The paper is clear, concise, and a pleasure to read as a result of appropriate and precise use of terminology; total coherence of thoughts and presentation and logical organization; and the essay is error free. Structure of the Paper (worth 10% of total points) Zero points: Student failed to submit the final paper. 3 points out of 10: Student needs to develop better formatting skills. The paper omits significant structural elements required for and APA 6th edition paper. Formatting of the paper has major flaws. The paper does not conform to APA 6th edition requirements whatsoever. 5 points out of 10: Appearance of final paper demonstrates the student’s limited ability to format the paper. There are significant errors in formatting and/or the total omission of major components of an APA 6th edition paper. They can include the omission of the cover page, abstract, and page numbers. Additionally the page has major formatting issues with spacing or paragraph formation. Font size might not conform to size requirements. The student also significantly writes too large or too short of and paper 7 points out of 10: Research paper presents an above-average use of formatting skills. The paper has slight errors within the paper. This can include small errors or omissions with the cover page, abstract, page number, and headers. There could be also slight formatting issues with the document spacing or the font Additionally the paper might slightly exceed or undershoot the specific number of required written pages for the assignment. 10 points: Student provides a high-caliber, formatted paper. This includes an APA 6th edition cover page, abstract, page number, headers and is double spaced in 12’ Times Roman Font. Additionally, the paper conforms to the specific number of required written pages and neither goes over or under the specified length of the paper.
