Abstract

Solid fuels have a great chance to take a leading position in the energy market in the future from an environmental and energy point of view. The development of science and technology makes it possible to use coal with minimal harmful emissions. Also, looking at a sufficient supply for the coming years can preserve the energy balance around the world. This type of solid fuel is the primary source of thermal power plants and can maintain a long-term stable price. To burn low-reactive fuels (coal), highly reactive fuels (fuel oil or natural gas) are used, leading to various environmental and economic costs, climate change, and polluting the environment by providing initiatives to find alternatives to clean-burning minimal financial outlay. One of the promising technologies presented at various international exhibitions and widely used in some countries is plasma technology. Burners running on fuel oil or gas are replaced by a plasma-coal burner, which gives low-temperature plasma using a plasma torch. The temperature of the plasma-air torch at the outlet of the plasma torch in conventional plasma burners can reach 5000 K, which allows you to destroy harmful substances in your area.
