Circulating (CFB) or Bubbling Fluidized-Bed (BFB) Boilers

Fluidized-bed technology offers the advantage of reduced NOx and SO2 emissions by allowing the control of bed temperature and using reagents such as limestone as bed material. Additional benefits include the ability to use fuels such as biomass or waste fuels which are difficult to burn in conventional boiler systems.

B&W’s advanced circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) and bubbling fluidized-bed (BFB) designs are reliable and flexible to meet the most demanding requirements in many applications.

Our CFB and BFB technologies offer:

  • High combustion efficiency
  • A compact, economical design
  • Higher reliability and availability
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Reduced erosion
  • Fuel flexibility
  • Low emissions

University of Missouri

Project / Case Feature Item

University of Missouri
Missouri, USA

B&W designed, engineered and supplied a biomass-fueled bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) boiler to replace the University of Missouri’s existing coal-fired boiler, and to provide the university campus with electricity and steam for heating and other uses. Designed to burn chipped hardwoods and various local opportunity fuels near the university campus, the boiler will produce lower sulfur dioxide emissions and less ash than a typical coal-fired boiler.
