  • Influence of initial moisture on pyrolysis of fresh biomass

    Experiments were performed in a thermogravimetric analyser to understand the effects of initial moisture of biomass on its pyrolysis and kinetics. Scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffractometry and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy were employed to determine the effects of the initial moisture of grass on the char structure. Kinetic parameters were obtained by applying Flynn-Wall-Ozawa ...

  • Asymmetric responses of paspalum species to a soil moisture gradient

    Anecdotal evidence suggests that dallisgrass (Paspalum dilatatum Poir.) and bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flueggé), two of the most troublesome weed species in managed turfgrass, are both drought and flood tolerant. Water table depth gradient tanks were employed to identify habitat specialization and competitive differences between dallisgrass and bahiagrass. Shoot and rhizome final biomass and ...

  • Emissions and performance from a biomass boiler for different solid biomass fuels

    During biomass combustion, a number of physical and chemical processes occur in time and space during the combustion. The processes include: drying and preheating of the fuel, pyrolytic release of volatile matter, glowing combustion char, etc. In general the combustion of biomass produces, next to energy, ash, carbon dioxide and monoxide, unburnt hydrocarbons, oxides of nitrogen, particulate ...

  • How can we use Biomass as an energy source?

    Any Country which has Agriculture or Forestry waste available has big scope to use biomass as an energy source. We can use Biomass as fuel in its loose form but we can also bind them in solid fuel for more energy consumption. Any biomass like forestry waste, Agriculture waste or any other biomass waste can be recycled into solid biomass fuel/Bio coal/White coal/Briquette. What is ...

  • 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. ...

  • Modeling the effect of extrusion parameters on density of biomass pellet using artificial neural network

    Abstract Background The relationships between the density of the biomass pellet and the related variables are very complicated and highly nonlinear, which make developing a single, general, and accurate mathematical model almost impossible. One of the most appropriate methods to solve these problems is the intelligent method. Shankar and Bandyopadhyay and Shankar et al. successfully used genetic ...

ACC, based in Porto (Portugal), has grown to become the world’s largest producer and distributor of cork products. Apart from traditional bottle stoppers, the proverbial ”cork” so intimately associated with wine, the company has over the ...

  • Integration of Fischer-Tropsch fuel production with a complex oil refinery

    The oil refining industry is facing harder policies on renewable content in its products. One way to meet this is to produce diesel and gasoline from gasification of biomass via a Fischer-Tropsch (FT) synthesis. In this paper, heat integrating a biomass-to-FT syncrude process with a refinery is compared to a stand-alone biomass-to-FT syncrude process, in terms of the consequences for GHG ...

  • International Forest Products Company, Western Canada Mill Location

    Biomass Commercialization Application One of the world’s largest integrated forest products companies identified a commercial application for waste biomass produced by one of their mills. A DRY-REX low-temperature during system was designed and implemented at the mill which converts the biomass comprising 40% solids and 60% moisture into the materials that are 90% solids for commercial use, ...

  • Effect of various leachate recirculation strategies on batch anaerobic digestion of solid substrates

    Various leachate recirculation strategies were applied to a batch-wise operated solid-phase digestion system in laboratory-scale tests. Comparative experiments with both continuous and intermittent leachate recirculation revealed no advantages of a continuous flow. Results suggest that leachate recirculation should not be carried out continuously during process initialisation when methanogenesis ...
