The 3R Process CLEAN MULTI FUEL:
The 3R process is a cost efficient preventive pre-treatment of low-grade solid multi
fuels by low temperature carbonization in downsized reductive environment for
removal of hazardous air pollutants prior burning and improvement of burning
efficiency of the revitalized solid fuel power plant-CHP up to 300 MW capacity.
The 3R technology has been developed to meet the open – liberalized energy and
co-generation market demands and has been implemented by the support of the
EUROPEAN UNION DG Energy and Transport
contract No: EU FP5 NNE5/363/2001
CONCEPTS:
•
Prevention versus „end of pipe” solution, resulting
•Guaranteed and competitive long term clean energy supply
•Providing compatibility between development of open – liberalized
energy market and the objectives of the environmental protection
•Providing overall cost savings for sustainable clean energy production
•
Separated material stream treatment versus „all in one flow”
•
Improve safety and recycle-reduce-reuse all streams
•
Flexible feed choice application from regionally available feed supply
•
Improving overall cost efficiency for green energy production

The goal of this presentation
We would like to introduce to you an innovative „green energy production”
technology that :
• Converts widely available low grade fuels to high grade fuels by
value added 3R process application
• Meets the „open – liberalized energy market” demands for clean
energy production in a sustainable way
• Converts trash (low grade fuels) into cash (clean electric energy)
The purpose of this presentation if to attract strategic partners for 3R
Field Demonstration revitalization set up at solid fuel power plant(s)
and CHP’s between the capacities from 20 MW to 300 MW power, in
order to bring this technique into commercial practice.

Input
The key component of the 3R method and apparatus is an indirectly heated
horizontally arranged closed cycle operating rotary kiln, where material is safely
separated in absence of air and decomposed into gas-vapour and solid phase.
The hazardous air pollutants, such as Sulphur, Chlorine and Mercury are
removed in the gas-vapour phase and separately treated – recycled in
downsized environment, while Clean Multi Fuel – Clean Coal is utilized in boiler.

3R process description abstract
The multi fuel feed stream is dried to < 15 % weight volume moisture
content and homogenized to 0-5 mm particle size dimension. The
carbonization is processed in the continuously fed indirectly heated 3R
rotary kiln with material core temperature up to 600 °C in absence of air.
The separated gas-vapor phase, containing volatile compounds and
hazardous air pollutants, is continuously removed and in a post combustor
burned off under 1250 °C and minimum 2 sec. residence time. Due to the
reductive environment, post burner and fast cooling options, creation and
recreation of dioxins are prevented.
The solid phase Clean Multi Fuel „Clean Coal” is introduced into the
power plant boiler feed system for clean energy production.
The heat is recovered and flue gas is cleansed in a high efficient multi
venturi off-gas scrubber. Mercury (if any) is separated from the flow and
process water is treated with lime, whereas clean gypsum is achieved
containing no ash and heavy metals which is contrary to the traditional
residual management where the gypsum contains both ash and heavy
metals. The comprehensive process is integrated linked or bolt-on to an
operating solid fuel power plant, and can be operated in an independent
mode as well.

The advantages of the 3R process
Reductive thermal treatment in downsized environments („downsized”
refers to lower volume of off-gas treatment by pretreatment option
compared to conventional off- gas treatment by „end of pipe” option)
Safe and cost efficient treatment of volatile toxic components with
variations in flow, composition and concentration.
No creation and recreation of dioxins and furan gases during the
process.
Designed to cost efficiently meet installation demands and
conditions of existing industrial units: modular installation option per
block.
Flexible operation and maintenance.
Providing near zero emission solution: comprehensive recycling and
reuse of all material streams.
Improving overall cost efficiency of the green energy production as per
„open energy market” demand conditions.

The application advantages of the Clean Multi Fuel
end product
Clean Multi Fuel is introduced into the boiler system, while
hazardous air pollutants, such as Sulphur, Chlorine and Mercury
have already been removed prior to burning in a separate treatment
process.
Simplifying „end of pipe” off-gas treatment process and decreasing
the capital intensivity for the off-gas treatment process
installations.
Providing cost efficient solution for residual recycling and reuse.
Reducing boiler corrosion and improving process safety.
Improving burning and boiler efficiency
Improving overall cost efficiency of the green energy production.
