    Abstract: An Euler-Lagrange CFD method for co-gasification simulation of slurry mixture of pulverized petroleum coke and up to 20% biomass (wheat straw) in a pressurized entrained flow gasifier is proposed to increase the biomass contribution to green electricity generation. The gas phase is modeled as a continuum and the solid phase is modeled by a Discrete... Show More
