Jack Fuller and Yang Guo

This current research effort will consider boiler conditions in 2016 within the United States. The analysis was based on data gathered from a voluntary survey completed by plant owners and operators. The survey responses included the following: (1) boiler fuel sources, (2) efficiency performance, (3) environmental performance, (4) operations and maintenance activities, and (5) boiler availability. The analysis also included future concerns with respect to daily boiler operation from the responding plant operators and management.
