Determination of Total Chlorine in Derived or Secondary Fuels Using High-Temperature Combustion and Coulometric Titration

Waste materials are becoming more and more important as valuable feed materials for energy production, as fuels and recycled feed materials for the chemical industry. To ensure a trouble-free processing and high quality of the final products, the exact elemental composition has to be determined. In addition to heavy metals, carbon, hydrogen and sulfur, chlorine plays an important role. During processing, HCl can be formed and damage system components and contaminate costly catalysts. Under nonoptimal combustion conditions Cl compounds can influence the formation of extremely toxic dioxins. It’s therefore important to know the exact Cl content of the matrix being used.
