Volume 3, Issue 2, Pages 63 - 68


In waste-to-energy plants, the combustion chamber, i.e. the boiler is an essential part of the system. Due to the relatively high temperatures, the acidic slags, ashes and flue gases, the burning of waste produces a highly corrosive atmosphere. Under these extreme operating conditions, high performance refractory materials are essential to provide a high level of safety and efficiency. The objective of this report is to give an overview of the new, improved Saint-Gobain materials for the waste-to-energy market.
