  • 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. ...

  • A case study of biomass burning and its smoke dispersion to Buenos Aires City, Argentina

    In February and March 2000, several uncontrolled forest and grassland fires occurred in the municipalities of Campana and Zarate (100 km north of Buenos Aires, Argentina). The biomass burning emitted a large amount of smoke particulates, which caused dense fog and visibility impairment in the nearby area. From 18 to 19 March, the smoke was transported towards the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area ...

  • 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 ...

  • Biomass energy outlook

    Over the last three or four weeks, my newsletter, Burning Bio News, has been oddly extreme. Timothy Searchinger, Princeton University, is churning out more antibiofuel hearsay. Dennis Avery, Hudson Institute, was in the news again putting a counter-spin on climate change. The U.S.EPA released its proposed rule for regulation of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) that includes industrial facilities that emit ...

  • Ethanol, Biomass Plants Planned for Minnesota

    Proposed facilities prepare to turn organic residuals into electricity, methane and synthesis gas “with minimal emissions and more profit.” AN ETHANOL plant in Little Falls, Minnesota is building an on-site gasifier that will convert wood waste and distiller's grains to gas for generating electricity and heat to serve the needs of the Central Minnesota Ethanol Cooperative. At the same time, ...

  • Mountain of Mulch Grows at Biomass Plant

    Renegy Holdings may not be in the mulch business, but you’d never know it. Piled on the company’s property is 25,000 tons of high-quality mulch, and that’s only since the beginning of 2009. By the end of the year, that pile is expected to triple in size to around 75,000 tons, with equal amounts expected to be generated in each of the next couple of years. “We’re technically not in the mulch ...

  • Biomass Pellet Fuel and Its Advantages

    With the continuous deterioration of the people's living environment, global warming topic has become a concern of people from all walks of people. It has been very important to the development of new energy. At present, our main fuel is oil and coal, these are non-renewable materials, and you'll never have again when we use them up. Therefore, many countries are in the research of new energy, ...

  • Role of biomass questioned for clean power plan

    In a May 8, 2015, letter, Senators Ed Markey (D-MA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) requested that EPA reconsider its decision to treat biomass as having zero emissions under the proposed Clean Power Plan (Plan). The Senators point out "wood-burning power plants emit around 3,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per ...

  • Overview of biomass and bioenergy sources in northern B.C.

    Ibrahim Karidio identified four groups of biomass sources: cellulosic materials from wood residues, agricultural crops, animal wastes, and municipal and industrial solid wastes. “B.C. has a huge land mass,” Karidio said. Of the total provincial annual allowable cut, 47% comes from the Northern Interior. B.C. generates 31% of Canadian wood residues and 66% of Canadian surplus wood residues. ...

  • Case study - Decorpanel opts for Mawera biomass solution

  • 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.
