Abstract

This paper is aiming to obtain some relevant data regarding the technical and economical feasibility of emulsified fuels technology and to evaluate the profitability of its use as alternative combustibles for boilers. The first part of the paper presents the main results published in the open literature, whereas in the second part it is described a preliminary economic evaluation of the emulsion prepared in a laboratory scale technology, based on the cost elements available to date. The emulsified fuels, new products recently introduced on the market, must be economically competitive, in order to be promoted as fuels for heating. The described preliminary assessment of the laboratory scale technology for the production of emulsified fuels takes into consideration the available data regarding the process structure as well as raw materials and energy consumptions.
