The use of alternative combustion fuels that provide a renewable source of energy is a major area of research and investment. Sources of biomass fuels include virgin wood, energy crops, agricultural residues, food waste and industrial waste. Controlling the combustion process of any new fuel and keeping track of the biomass fuel emissions of combustion by-products is important to users of these new fuels.
If you produce or consume biomass fuels, you know that quality is critical to your success, and you know that moisture and ash content control are critical to biomass fuel quality. Too much moisture and you get poor efficience and high emissions. Too much ash and you get fouling and slagging. And if either of those is uncontrolled, purchase contracts can fall through. Computrac can help.
If waste wood is utilized, woody biomass can be a form of renewable energy that complements solar and wind. Furthermore, gasifying the wood to produce electricity is a lot cleaner than disposing via controlled burns, and has a lower carbon footprint than decomposition, since decomposition often produces methane, and reverts all of the carbon to carbon dioxide, whereas with gasification, a portion is sequestered as char-ash.
The Triogen ORC can be used with biomass combustion, for example sawdust, chips, bark and treated wood; and other biomasses, such as straw, rice, husks and bio-sludge, as well as other high organic-content waste. The Triogen ORC will be connected to the combustor. The Triogen ORC converts the flue gasses from the combustor into electricity.
Biomass energy from gasification, when done responsibly with waste wood or suitable agricultural waste such as nut shells, is often eligible for feed-in tariffs. However, biomass gasification has the advantage of being on-demand, so you can feed renewable energy onto the grid at times when wind and solar are not abundant, enabling you to avoid times when prices are too low due to an excess of wind or solar power being fed to the grid.
You`ll find Jeffrey Rader`s equipment employed in many stages of woody biomass processing. Woody Biomass is the residual waste wood that results from the lumber manufacturing process. It is burned in a boiler to generate steam that is used both in the lumber-drying process and to produce electricity. Jeffrey Rader is a leader in serving the electric utility industry with boiler feed systems (pneumatic and mechanical) for producing electric power from biomass materials.
Syngas (short for synthetic gas) can be burnt and used as a fuel source, the main constituents of syngas are Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrogen (H), which amount for around 85% of Syngas, and it is produced by a process called Gasification.
Gasification starts with a base material which can originate from a wide variety of materials for example wood chips and pellets, plastics, municipal solid waste, sewage, waste crops, and fossil fuels such as coal. During Gasification the base material is reacted at high...
Converting wood waste into electricity—lumber mill off-cuts, wood from forestry thinnings (cleared of leaf matter), disposal of wooden pallets and crating (with nails removed). Wood is chipped, dried, and used to produce electricity, reducing electrical costs and paid disposal.
Disposal by gasification also has far lower particulate emissions than controlled burns and a lower carbon footprint than decomposition, since methane emissions from anaerobic decomposition are avoided. Decomposing wood reverts all of its...
ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel Technologies is a global leading supplier of technologies, production plants, systems and services for the animal feed, aqua feed, and pet food industries and for the biomass pelleting industry.
Rising fuel and electric costs, along with global warming concerns have changed the way industrial facilities view energy consumption. Process equipment and air pollution control systems that were installed several years ago may not reflect the energy conscious designs available today, analyzing these systems to determine energy reduction opportunities can be a very valuable practice. Recovering waste heat is one of the easiest and most utilized means of reducing energy demands at industrial facilities.
Companies engaged in biomass processing are increasingly adopting stationary pre-shredder technology to increase the delivery of consistent, specific carbon-neutral biomass energy products. This selected fuel is attractive to operators of incineration facilities who are keen to reduce their overall carbon emissions.
Engineered Fuel and waste fuels are an increasingly important resource Waste-derived materials as an alternative to oil, gas and coal, selected and treated with the most up-to-date technologies, can be transferred into energy thanks to their combustible properties, these efforts assist us to obtain zero waste.
Being driven by new legislation, the production of substitute fuel/alternative fuel will be gain momentum in the next few years, as well as the expected increase of recycling rate in municipalities. This means a lot of waste streams can be turned into alternative fuel for the coal fired power plant, cement and lime industry, biomass power plant, or other industrial boiler systems that still burning fossil fuels.
Renewable energy from biomass: Solid biomass is intended to make a major contribution to the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energies. However, to reach the ambitious goals for heating and energy generation from woody biomass, it will need to be made available in large amounts. In keeping with our slogan, "Technology for a better environment", we have taken up the challenge of finding ways to do this.
MDF production requires large amounts of energy. Most of the demand of energy is thermal: steam for the cooking and refining process, hot gas for drying and thermal oil for the continuous press. VYNCKE offers customized energy solutions, burning a wide variety of process fuels and external fuels (all types of biomass). The energy plant can be designed to produce steam in a direct way (through an integrated steam boiler) or in an indirect way via a thermal oil-steam heat exchanger. The system can be adjusted to...
