Abstract STAL-LAVAL has been monitoring the development of pressurized fluidized-bed combustion (PFBC) technology and has decided to apply it as a way to burn coal and satisfy the important criteria of efficiency, low cost, environmental acceptability, low investment cost, and the capacity to use a wide range of coal qualities. The present status of PFBC and co-generation technology is reviewed and examples of industrial as well as utiltiy applications are cited. A successful commercialization of PFBC could contribute to the success of coal-utilization policies. (DCK)
