ABSTRACT
The article offers a research paper which examines the technical feasibility of alternative fuels that include petroleum coke, wood residues, and olein biofuel. It mentions that paper mills must find more economical fuel alternatives due to the steady increase in energy costs. It is stated that due to the different composition of every fuel, it is essential to understand the pros and cons of burning every fuel using it in the lime kiln.
