A significant number of the TPP’s coal-fired boilers of Ukraine are outdated, have low efficiency and high level of emissions. It is necessary to find low cost way which helps to reduce usage of gas on TPP as supporting fuel and to reduce total emission of the nitrogen oxides. The 60 MWth burner that meets these demands has been developed in Coal Energy Technology Institute for 300 MWel unit. Experimental studies showed reducing usage of gas down to 3 times on Ukrainian anthracite. The burner operation was reliable in all load ranges of the boiler for 1.5 year. Environmental operation analysis showed that TCP burners’ installation could lead to total reduction of the NOx up to 20 %.
