  • Activated Carbons Prepared through H3PO4-Assisted Hydrothermal Carbonisation from Biomass Wastes: Porous Texture and Electrochemical Performance

    Hydrothermal treatment of biomass in the presence of phosphoric acid is proposed for the production of activated carbons (ACs). Interestingly, H3PO4 promotes the fixation of carbon atoms in the solid during hydrothermal treatment, which renders higher preparation yields than those of the conventional impregnation method. Upon carbonisation of the resulting hydrochars at ...

  • 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 ...

  • VSEP beats decanter centrifuge at solids removal from ethanol biomass

    As the world searches for fuel alternatives to gasoline, a clear candidate to lead the way has emerged, Ethanol. Ethanol production for use as a fuel additive (or to be used directly as a fuel source) has grown in popularity due to governmental regulations and in some cases economic incentives. Both regulations and incentives seem to be based on environmental concerns as well as a desire to ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • Gaseous emissions during concurrent combustion of biomass and non-recyclable municipal solid waste

    Abstract Background: Biomass and municipal solid waste offer sustainable sources of energy; for example to meet heat and electricity demand in the form of combined cooling, heat and power. Combustion of biomass has a lesser impact than solid fossil fuels (e.g. coal) upon gas pollutant emissions, whilst energy recovery from municipal solid waste is a beneficial component of an integrated, ...

  • Exergy analysis of an integrated two–stage biomass gasifier and Solid Oxide Fuel Cell system

    In this study, an exergy analysis is applied to a conceptual integrated two–stage biomass gasifier and Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) system. Several simulations are conducted to assess the effect of some key input parameters on the exergy ratios of the components and the exergy efficiency of the system. The results show that the exergy efficiency of the integrated system varies between 11.6% and ...

  • New technologies for measuring the humidity of biomass

    Methods applicable to a great variety of solid biofuels In recent years, systems have sprung up which use near infrared X-ray (NIR) spectroscopy, radio frequency (RF) and microwave spectroscopy as alternatives to the traditional method of measuring humidity by weight difference in the fuel burner. What these methods have in common is that they can be used for a great variety of solid biofuels, ...

  • Vermicomposting technology for solid waste management

    IntroductionAristotle called worms the “intestines of the earth” and stated that there may not be any other creature that has played so important a role in the history of life on earth. Earthworms constitute a large part of biomass (living bodies) inhabiting soil. In recent years efforts have been made to use the potential of earthworms in recycling of nutrients, waste management and development ...


  • New solid waste definition proposed

    When the Boiler MACT rule was vacated in 2007, one key element in the court challenge was that many non-fossil fuel materials burned in industrial boilers should be classified as solid wastes and regulated accordingly. Along with the recently proposed Boiler MACT and rules for commercial/industrial/solid waste incinerators (CISWI), EPA proposed criteria to determine whether non-hazardous ...
