  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • Research and development on biomass energy in China

    Like developed countries, China is facing two serious constraints energy shortage and environmental pollution, which hinder the development of the national economy and improvements in living conditions. On the other hand, China has a huge amount of biomass resource. It is estimated that the total amount of biomass resource is up to 5.2x108 tons of oil equivalent (TOE) in which crop residue ...

  • 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. ...

  • Spray drying of microalgae biomass for biofuel production

    BUCHI Mini Spray Dryer B-290: Yield and total yield determination in spray dried microalgaes Recently, microalgal biomass has been recognized as a promising alternative source of raw material for biofuel production. Algal biomass has several advantages that may help to meet the need for the global demand of transport fuels, such as rapid growth rate, high lipid content, small land usage, ...

  • Walki biomass cover: easy cover-up improves drying process and energy content of energy wood

    Logging residue is an inexpensive and easily accessible source of biofuel, but to improve the energy content it must first dry on the ground and after that it can be stored in piles for several months. To shelter the piles from moisture through rain, snow and ice, Walki has developed a paper-based, waterproof cover that can be chipped and burned together with the residue. The importance of ...

  • Green Energy Fuel by Briquettes Machine

    Now a day’s demand of energy is increasing very rapidly but we have the limited sources to satisfy the energy requirements.  This energy demand is expected to grow almost by half over in the next two decades. So it is causing fear that our resources will run out by future. This will lead to shocking consequences of global economy.   On the other side, Due to the emission ...

  • A model for anaerobic ponds combining settling and biological processes

    This work presents an approach to an anaerobic pond model by combining the stoichiometry of the hydrolysis and acidogenic processes of the main constituents of wastewater, i.e. carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids, grouped as a ‘combined substrate’ with a previously published settling model (see ‘Suspended solids settling and half removal time in stabilization ponds ...

  • Commericalizing cellulosic ethanol

    Cellulosic biofuels, produced from nonfood feedstock, are expected to play a critical role in reducing the country's dependence on imported oil. EISA, the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, calls for the production of 100 million gallons per year (mgpy) of cellulosic biofuels by 2010, with a longer term goal of 16 billion gallons by 2022.Achieving these goals will not be easy. Several ...
