HC Deb 15 December 1975 vol 902 c452W
50. Mr. Rost

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what estimates he has for potential energy savings which would result from the application of fluidised combustion in power generation and in industry; and what are his proposals for promoting such a programme.

Mr. John Smith

The development of the various applications of fluidised bed combustion is not sufficiently far advanced for well-based estimates of potential energy savings to be made, and any thoughts of promoting an energy saving programme based on this technique would be premature.
