New Combustion Additive Developed in DPRK
Pyongyang, February 27 (KCNA) -- A research group of the Central Experiment Analytical Institute of the State Academy of Sciences developed a new combustion additive which helps raise the effectiveness of combustion of all sorts of coal including high and low-caloric coal.

The additive is alkaline liquid of brown color.

When 0.5-1 liter of this additive is mixed with 1 ton of coal, the speed of ignition becomes 1.5 times quicker and caloric force and combustion efficiency increase 10-15% and 15-25% respectively, making it possible to save 10-25% of coal.

It also raises the temperature inside a furnace 100-200 degrees centigrade.

This additive can be used to ensure high productivity at industrial furnaces and boilers, including revolving, shaft and iron smelting furnaces and steam boiler with coal as their feed.

It has been introduced to the Posan Iron Works, Tanchon Magnesia Factory, Sangwon Cement Complex and some other units.
