Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) boilers have witnessed substantial growth over the past couple of years owing to the increased need for power coupled with stricter emission norms which resulted in the need for cleaner methods of power generation. CFB boilers, due to their lower operating temperatures reduce the emission of gases such as sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. Furthermore, the reducing resource availability of fossil fuels such as coal has led to the development of CFB boilers which operate on a variety of fuels in addition to coal.
