Circulating Fluidized Bed Boilers
According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research, the global CFB boilers' installed capacity
was 60 GWe in 2011 and is expected to reach 134.19 GWe in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 12.2% from 2012 to 2018.
The primary factor responsible for the rising number of CFB installations is the fuel flexibility offered by these boilers. They
can produce energy using a variety of fuels apart from coal, such as peat and biomass. In addition, due to lower operating
temperatures of CFB boilers, they produce fairly low levels of harmful gases such as nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide and
carbon dioxide, as compared to the conventional PC fired boilers. The growing environmental norms have augmented the
development of the CFB boilers market and are expected to drive the market over the forecast period. However, the
market could be hampered in the event of design flaws in the boiler which is likely to lead to depositions and corrosion of
the boiler surface.
