This paper presents the validated simulation of a full-scale circulating fluidized bed boiler as obtained via a comprehensive three-dimensional CFB process model. The model is utilized in boiler design and scale-up as well as to study and optimize boiler performance. Feedstock characterization tests, which are also presented, are used to provide data for those parts of the process where up-to-date modeling is not fully reliable, thus enabling the model to provide accurate results.
