- Adding 0.5% waste iron residue, the coal combustion efficiency was enhanced.
- Adding 0.5% waste iron residue, the total PAHs concentration was decreased.
- The maximum removal of the total PAHs TEQ was 45.24% by waste iron residue.
Effects of adding waste iron residue on the combustion efficiency and the removal of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) during coal combustion were investigated in a laboratory scaled drop tube furnace at a temperature range of 950–1250°C. The experimental results indicated that adding 0.5% waste iron residue had a good performance on enhancing combustion efficiency during coal combustion. Meanwhile, the addition of 0.5% waste iron residue was also favor for reducing PAHs emission as well as PAHs TEQ concentrations during coal combustion at a temperatures range of 950–1250°C. With adding 0.5% waste iron residue (WIR), the coal combustion efficiency was enhanced by 6.15%, and the total PAHs concentration in flue gas was decreased by 44.94% at 1150°C. The maximum removal of the total PAHs TEQ concentration was as high as 45.24% at 1250°C.
