This article focuses on Cellulosic Pretreatment heating strategies with Direct Steam Injection (DSI) heating and how to transition from a lab environment to a successful process level production design. Typical applications include cellulosic & biomass ethanol processing, pulp stock processes, and other process fluid heating applications where fibrous materials are present in the process. Topics covered will be how DSI works, keys to successful DSI integration with fibrous slurries, & Pilot Lab design considerations with a focus towards eventual production environment. This article was published in the July 2008 issue of the Biomass Magazine.
The Beltran biomass cogeneration system
An effective, economical solution for harvesting safe, renewable domestic energy, mitigating wastes and achieving environmental goals.BackgroundThe Beltran Biomass Cogeneration System (BBCS) is an integrated, three-stage process that uses proprietary gasification technology to convert biomass and other organic wastes into versatile, cleanburning synthesis gas. The purified gas can then be burned to generate energy as combined heat and power (CHP), or to produce valuable hydrogen, liquid biofuels, synthetic...
How to prolong the service life of biomass fired boiler
Because of the shortage of energy and environmental deterioration caused by the extensive use of fossil fuel,biomass fired boiler has played a more and more important role in the industrial boilers.Therefore,we need to focus on the following aspects of work to ensure its normal operation and prolong its service life: Biomass fired boiler cleaning Open the door of burner,remove the rear housing panel,unscrew the screw on the clean mouth of rear boiler,clean the gas pipeline with wire brush and clean the...
Biomass Briquettes: the Renewable Energy for the Tribals
The tribals are actual owners of the land but post independence era and due to faulty land reforms they have lost a significant amount of land and the customary right to live in their own area. The renewable energy policy in India can give them a new leash of life.For years the tribals in India have dependent on the Nature for their living. It is well known fact that forest and natural surrounding play a major role in the lives of such people. But today they have been forced to move out of their natural habitat...
How to improve the combustion efficiency of biomass fired steam boiler
Biomass fired steam boiler,like other industrial boilers,needs to improve its combustion efficiency to realize energy conservation.Zhengzhou Boiler Co., Ltd,as an experienced biomass fired steam boiler manufacturer in China,gives the following advices to improve the combustion efficiency of biomass fired steam boiler to us. Ensuring the adequate supply of air,adequate air can accelerate the combustion ,insufficient air supply will increase the heat loss because of incomplete combustion,which reduces the combustion...
How Briquetting Press Has Enhanced The Use Of Biomass Waste
Biomass waste has been used for producing the energy and fulfilling the household needs. With the inception of briquetting press the briquettes produced from the machines are now being used for greater purposes in diverse industries. The mounting need for energy and industries are looking for alternative sources of energy for their all power needs. Other than the rising prices and frequent power interruption are major reasons behind for the need of alternative ways to generate energy. Experts globally have...
