Fluidized bed combustion is capable of utilizing a wider variety of fuels (including solid wastes) than is any other combustion process. Thus, it has the potential for wide application in systems for recovering energy from solid wastes in industry, commercial sites, institutions, forestry, and agriculture to produce electric power, process steam, process heat, and space heating. Three fluidized bed combustion concepts are identified for near-term application: atmospheric fluidized bed boiler, exhaust-heated gas turbine or combined cycle, and closed-cycle gas turbine.
