Green Steam: Firing Hydrogen in HRSG Duct Burners

Are you interested in learning more about alternative fuel projects, particularly green steam? This white paper will discuss the importance of understanding how hydrogen firing affects duct burners and Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) design, performance, and emissions.


Paul Brown, Vice President, Custom Boiler Systems – Cleaver-Brooks


Hydrogen firing is not a new concept. Most major boiler/burner manufacturers have some experience burning hydrogen. Many petrochemical and chemical plants have hydrogen as a byproduct of their process, and they have been utilizing this fuel for their boilers for decades. Currently, there are plants being designed and built strictly to manufacture hydrogen for commercial purposes.

Duct Burners are used to increase the steaming rate when the gas turbine output is less than required to achieve desired steaming rate.
