When industrial waste flows (mixtures of different substances) are burned, thermal energy is generated in the combustion chambers of the heat generating plants. In this case, the energy contribution of the chemical compounds included in their composition is different. The article considers the enthalpies of combustion of the most characteristic chemicals, formulates the energy balance equations while simultaneously burning several mass flows of fuels, taking into account their calorific value.

An analysis is made of the contribution of convection and the radiation mechanism to the total amount of heat transferred to the heat generator, depending on the process temperature. It is demonstrated that the heat transfer by radiation between the combustion chamber and the boiler tubes depends on the thermal radiation properties of ash deposition. In this case, the emissivity of the resulting ash deposition decreases with increasing temperature. The dependence of the maximum flame radiation on the C/H ratio by weight is considered using the example of the initial combustible chemicals that are part of solid, liquid and gaseous wastes of industrial technologies. The main pollutants which emerge during the combustion of industrial waste are determined. The mechanisms of formation of nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter, sulfur oxides (SOx), halogen acids, polymers, soot, volatile organic compounds and ash are considered in detail. The distribution of various processes of formation of nitrogen oxides depending on the value inverse to the coefficient of excess air (φ = 1/α) is determined. A physical scheme and a system of chemical equations of the mechanism of soot formation which includes the most important stages of the formation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are presented. The stages of the separation of reactive ash-forming elements are considered. It is demonstrated that ash deposits pose serious problems in the operation of heat generators, especially those that have such a developed heat exchange surface, such as boiler plants. In this regard, the forms and conditions of the processes of ash deposition are also considered separately. The combustion conditions affecting the state, size and distribution of solid particles and the condensed phase of ash are determined.
