Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.


Kazakhstan scientists developed a plasma technology for burning coal at thermal power stations, Aleksander Ustimenko, Director of NTO Plasmotekhnika and head of heat physics department of Scientific-Research Institute of Experimental and Theoretical Physics of Al-Farabi Kazakh National University told Tengrinews.kz.

According to him, thermal power stations currently use fuel-oil residue to heat up the boilers. This is related to the fact that coal flares up only at the temperature of over 1,000 degrees Centigrade. Heating up one boiler requires several hours and up to 100 tons of fuel-oil residue. During one heating season the boilers are heated up over ten times. The scientist noted that Kazakhstan coal had high ash content of up to 50 percent. Sustaining its burning in the boiler also requires burning of fuel-oil residue.

The Kazakhstan innovation allows to fully eliminate the use of residue at thermal power stations, replacing it with coal dust flared up by plasma. The technology is based on the electric-thermal-chemical preparation of coal for burning that is made in the plasma-fuel system (PFS) equipped with arc-jet plasmotron.
