Which is a benefit of using fluidized bed combustion to burn coal at an electric power plant?
Fluidized bed combustion operates at a higher temperature and will generate hotter steam to run the turbine.
Power plants using fluidized bed combustion emit less mercury into the environment.
If limestone is used in the fluidized bed, the $SO_x$ emissions will be reduced.
It is a more efficient way to burn coal and can generate 50% more electricity.
Fluidized beds act as a carbon capture system and remove 85% of the carbon dioxide emissions.
