Injection into a BF of BOF slag to improve the slag formation and of BF flue dust to improve the recycling of in-plant fines has previously been tested. The effects on the PC combustion efficiency at different conditions, when these materials are co-injected with coal, have so far not been tested. Combustion efficiencies at varied temperature, O2 enrichment, amount of PC, amount of added BOF slag or BF flue dust and particle size of the added material are measured in a fixed bed and a blowpipe model. The established facts that an increased temperature and O2 enrichment or a decreased amount of coal increase the combustion efficiency are valid also when BOF slag or BF flue dust are added to the coal. By adjusting the combustion conditions, a decreased combustion efficiency can be counteracted, when a second material is co-injected with coal. The effect of BOF slag addition on coal combustion efficiency measured in the blowpipe model is in-significant, if a fine fraction is used. The combustion efficiency is higher in the fixed bed compared with that in the blowpipe model. The addition of BF flue dust increases the combustion efficiency in the fixed bed
