Abstract

The role of Cu-based phases in combustion processes has boldly emerged with the drastic increase in the waste combustion, sparking the need to update thermodynamic databases for a better understanding and control. In the present work, we have reviewed the content and sources of Cu in selected biomass fuels and ashes, and examined the mechanisms through which it affects combustion processes and the environment. Phase equilibria and thermodynamic properties of phases in the CuCl-CuSO4 system and their effects on the melting behavior of chlorides and sulfates of Na, K, Cu, Pb, Zn, and Fe were investigated. The observed results are presented and discussed.
