Influence of hydrogen on the toxic substances formation process during co-incineration with natural gas




hydrogen, heating system, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen peroxide, flame front


The hydrogen practical using problem in combustion processes at the existing boiler equipment is described. The influence of hydrogen on the combustion process is analysed, including adding moisture and its role in the toxic substances formation. The laboratory unit for experimental process at the semi-lamina front follow-up is created for research the role hydrogen in co-firing with natural gas, depending on concentrations of oxide and nitrogen dioxide in combustion products. The relations between the nitrogen oxide and dioxide concentrations in combustion products and hydrogen concentration in hydrogen peroxide solution are received. The optimal conditions for the nitrogen oxide oxidation to dioxide is identified for solutions containing hydrogen depending on the hydrogen content in them.
