The composition and behavior emissions of a single fuel comprised of 88.18% CH4, 8.08% propane, and 3.74% butane flowing at 109. 45 standard L/min. The effect of two aqueous NaCl mixtures and HCl on combustion products of a vertical diffusion flame was considered. The addition of distilled water on aerosols as a co-flow into fuel stream significantly decreased soot production and less remarkably decreasing NOx emissions. Aerosolized NaCl solutions of 5.0 wt% and 9.1 wt% demonstrated a significant and somewhat unexpected effect on CO yields. At ≈ 20 wt% liquid loading, the CO and CH4 yields peaked and the peak emissions rate increased with solution strength. HCl loading had no significant alterations from distilled water in terms of gaseous and solid phase combustion emissions. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 108th AWMA Annual Conference and Exhibition (Raleigh, NC 6/22-25/2015).
