HC Deb 24 October 1986 vol 102 c1007W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for Energy if any overseas commercial scale orders or developments are known to his Department embodying the use of pressurised fluidised bed combustion based upon research carried out in the United Kingdom.

Mr. David Hunt

My Department is not aware of any overseas commercial scale pressurised fluidised bed plants under construction or ordered based on research carried out in the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom holds a prominent position in the development of this technology in which there is considerable international interest. Work continues in this country particularly at Grimethorpe where further work is being supported by British Coal and the Central Electricity Generating Board.
