Carbonation Behavior of Fly Ash with Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustion (CFBC)

This paper investigates the reaction rates of $CO_2$ that stores carbonation through comparing the carbonation behavior between $Ca(OH)_2$ and fly ash with circulating fluidized bed combustion (CFBC) containing a large amount of free CaO. Because fly ash with CFBC contains abundant free CaO, it cannot be used as a raw material for concrete admixtures; hence, its usage is limited. Thus, it has been buried until now. In order to consider its reuse, we conduct carbonation reactions and investigate its rates. X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric/differential thermal analysis (TG/DTA), and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) are conducted for the physical and chemical analyses of the raw materials. Furthermore, we use a PH meter and thermometer to verify the carbonization rates. We set the content of the fly ash of CFBC, $Ca(OH)_2$, $CO_2$ flow rate, and water to 100 ~ 400 g, 30 ~ 120 g, 700 cc/min, and 300 ~ 1200 g, respectively, based on the content of the free CaO determined through the TG/DTA analyses. As a result, the carbonization rate of the fly ash with CFBC is the same as that of $Ca(OH)_2$, and it tends to increase linearly. Based on these results, we investigate the carbonization behavior as a function of the free CaO content contained in the raw material.
Key words: Carbonation, Fly ash, CFBC, $Ca(OH)_2$, $CO_2$
