The main objective of this project is to find out the boiler capacity and its development. The thermal industry is considered to be the major source of conventional energy in India. The chemical energy of coal is converted into electricity in a thermal power plant. It is now the most in demand industry due to high energy demand. The boiler is a very important part of the power plant. Running the plant with maximum result we need high boiler efficiency. Calculating boiler efficiency as one of the most important types of performance measurement in any power plant. For calculation of Boiler efficiency basically we use Direct and Indirect method. It is a measure of how effectively chemical energy in fuel is converted into heat energy in steam going to the turbine. We also improve boiler efficiency by using coal activator.

The art of converting plastics into useful fuels was scaled up a few decades ago, but this side is far less likely. Plastic contains most of the organic polymers made up of carbon and other elements. Various processes such as gasification and pyrolysis are used to convert plastics into smaller hydrocarbon units such as naphtha. This is named as a “COAL ACTIVATOR”. This paper aims to provide the best options that will help reduce fuel (Coal) prices in the future.
