The article focuses on the circulating fluidized bed (CFB),a steam generator technology developed by Foster Wheeler Power Group. It notes that CFB is able to burn biomass and other carbon-neutral fuels and provides a solution to issues related to CO2. It mentions that the technology uses a combination of oxygen and recycled CFB flue gas rather than the use of air in the CFB combustion procedure.
