  • Sources of particulate matter: emission profile of biomass burning

    Biomass burning is an important source of atmospheric Particulate Matter (PM) in Brazil: the burning of forests in the northwest and of sugar cane plantations in the southeast are important examples. The objective of this work is the measurement of the PM emission profile of burning of sugar cane and other characteristic vegetative burning in the region of Sao Carlos-SP/Brazil. Samples of PM10 ...

  • NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF THE BURNING CHARACTERISTICS OF THERMALLY-THICK BIOMASS FUELS IN PACKED-BEDS

    Biomass fuels are being increasingly used for domestic heating and power generation to cut down the net CO2 emission to the atmosphere. In most cases, those fuels are thermally-thick under packed-bed combustion conditions. In this paper, a doublemesh numerical scheme is proposed and implemented to simulate the detailed combustion processes for a biomass fuel with sizes ranging from 5 mm to 50 mm. ...

  • Biomass burning causes record high peaks in PCBs in the Arctic

    Peaks in levels of PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) in the Arctic atmosphere are due to burning of biomass in areas such as Eastern Europe and North America. That’s according to researchers from the Norwegian Institute of Air Research and the University of Oslo, ...

  • Hurricane HR System to Reduce Particulate Matter from a Biomass Boiler Burning Pellets Under 50mg/Nm3 - Case Study

  • A case study of biomass burning and its smoke dispersion to Buenos Aires City, Argentina

    In February and March 2000, several uncontrolled forest and grassland fires occurred in the municipalities of Campana and Zarate (100 km north of Buenos Aires, Argentina). The biomass burning emitted a large amount of smoke particulates, which caused dense fog and visibility impairment in the nearby area. From 18 to 19 March, the smoke was transported towards the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area ...

  • The short-term effects of prescribed burning on biomass removal and the release of Nitrogen and Phosphorus in a treatment wetland

    Nutrient removal by constructed wetlands can decline over time due to the accumulation of organic matter. A prescribed burn is one of many management strategies used to remove detritus in macrophyte-dominated systems. We quantified the short-term effects on effluent water quality and the amount of aboveground detritus removed from a prescribed burn event. Surface water outflow concentrations were ...

  • Biomass power generation in China

    “China is an agricultural country,” said Frank Miao. Farmers used to burn harvest waste, and the government decided to capture this energy by constructing a biomass power plant. At the end of 2006, the total biomass power generation capacity in China was approximately 2,200 megawatts (MW). The planned capacity of biomass power plants is 30,000 MW by 2020. Depending on the size of the plant, three ...

  • What is Biomass Pellets Energy

    Biomass pellets energy means the energy made from biomass. What is biomass? Biomass refers to all the organic matters that store energy from photosynthesis. Therefore biomass in most cases means plants instead of animal. What is the chemical composition of biomass? Biomass is carbon based, so it contains ...


  • Biomass Briquette Machine

    Biomass Briquette Machine Introduction The biomass briquette machine is mainly used in processing agricultural residue like straw, rice straw, peanut shell, corn cob into solid briquettes in advanced technology. Briquetting is closely related to pelleting except that lager size stick fuel over 30mm named as briquettes. Our briquettes machine assists in clean burning and achieves biomass ...

  • Biomass energy outlook

    Over the last three or four weeks, my newsletter, Burning Bio News, has been oddly extreme. Timothy Searchinger, Princeton University, is churning out more antibiofuel hearsay. Dennis Avery, Hudson Institute, was in the news again putting a counter-spin on climate change. The U.S.EPA released its proposed rule for regulation of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) that includes industrial facilities that emit ...

  • Mountain of Mulch Grows at Biomass Plant

    Renegy Holdings may not be in the mulch business, but you’d never know it. Piled on the company’s property is 25,000 tons of high-quality mulch, and that’s only since the beginning of 2009. By the end of the year, that pile is expected to triple in size to around 75,000 tons, with equal amounts expected to be generated in each of the next couple of years. “We’re technically not in the mulch ...

  • Biomass Briquette Machine For Recycling Waste

    India is consistently heading towards the development and establishing more and more and industries which contributes nation to achieve high economic growth. And obviously due to that we can eradicate many problems like poverty, unemployment and other issues. But along with that pollution also increase. Everyday some chemical process take place which discharge chemical and also tons of industrial ...
