Research was carried out at the experimental installation defined by the 2 MW furnace pilot from the Politehnica University of Bucharest and ICEMENRG institute who was involved for measurements. The purpose of the experimental study is to confirm that the use of a coal with low sulphur content S<0.08% is possible without the use of sulphurpurification installations for industrial purposes. But, the high moisture content of the coal has imposed the problem of its compatibility with a certain milling technology. The pilot plant is equipped with fan mill and pre-drying tower. Under these conditions, this installation allows the grinding of fuels with high moisture content. The experiments focused on the process of ignition, combustion and pollutant emissions, with the exemplification, in particular, of the emission of sulfur dioxide. Also, the outbreak temperatures and the slugging temperature were monitored. For this purpose, the outbreak of the pilot boiler was equipped with all the equipment necessary to follow these parameters. The experiments have shown positive aspects to the burning of this fuel, thus laying the foundations of future tests at industrial installations (first of all, the power plant from Deva is considered).
