  • Possibility of biomass gasification in tea manufacturing industries in Assam, India

    Tea manufacturing industries in India use natural gas, tea drying oil, wood, and coal for process heat. India is the second largest producer of tea [(1,137.07, China 1,761.00) million kilogram] in 2012. About 0.6–1.2 kg of coal is required to produce one kilogram of dried tea with average moisture of 2.5–3 percentage (w.b.). Biomass gasification is an established renewable energy technology for ...

  • Different Process Configurations for Biomass-Carrier-Based Treatment of Industrial Wastewater

    IntroductionBiological treatment is still the most cost effective method to oxidize organic pollutants in wastewater. However, industrial wastewaters from different sources vary widely in composition. In some cases, the wastewater composition might prevent biological treatment by itself to meet effluent requirements. This work presents several different case studies: in laboratory, pilot and full ...

  • Bio-char refineries: an accessible approach for the development of biomass-based industry

    Being a by-product of the well-established charcoal industry, slow pyrolysis bio-oil can be an excellent, cost-effective and renewable liquid fuel. However, even in Brazil, a country with a very clean energy profile and large-scale charcoal production, bio-oil is not properly utilised yet. A simple upgrade of traditional methods of charcoal production can significantly increase liquid fuel ...
