  • An Integral Model for Wood Auto-ignition under Variable Heat Flux

    A one-dimensional integral model that predicts the auto-ignition time of wood under linearly increasing radiant heat flux is developed. The solution to the integral model for the ignition time is compared with measured data. Reasonable comparative results are shown for the ignition time of wood exposed to different heat flux increase rates (HFIR). Both the solutions and the measured data also ...

  • Animalistic heat

    Rearing animals requires a lot of patience, dedication and above all, constant warmth. Since this very year, a farmer from Schrozberg, Germany, relies on cost cutting technologies, namely solar thermal heating and wood chip heating. A constant temperature of 45 degrees Celsius is crucial to breed piglets. Enormous costs were the result of utilizing gas heating to provide a constant temperature ...

  • Safety in handling wood pellets

    Canada is primarily a bulk producer and exporter of pellets with large mills that make, on average, 56,000 tonnes per year, said Staffan Melin. When shipped in large volumes, pellets are classified as hazardous material, although wood pellets in consumer bags are benign. For example, carbon monoxide (CO) gas emissions released by pellets killed a person in the cargo hold of a ship in 2002. A ...

  • Wood briquettes packed full of energy

    Konolt manages its energy output using RUF briquetting machinery Timber processors Konold are improving their energy balance with the help of their RUF briquetting machine. Wood waste is being pressed into briquettes to create a uniform combustible material. The heat they produce is then used for process heating and to heat their premises, with the residual heat being used to generate ...

  • Energy systems in transition: perspectives for the diffusion of small-scale wood pellet heating technology

    Promising small-scale wood pellet heating systems with sizable market potentials have started to penetrate the residential heating market in Europe and elsewhere. Despite significant technological progress, cost reduction, improved convenience and reliability, and reduced environmental impact, diffusion of such systems will nonetheless take time. Framework and market conditions, and especially ...

  • Behavior of Flame Spread Downward over Thick Wood Sheets and Heat Transfer Analysis

    To investigate the flame spreading mechanism over charring materials under natural convection, wood sheets from 0.9 to 3 mm thickness have been chosen. The variation of mean flame spread velocity V with thickness  is measured. Typical flame shapes over the wood surfaces are recorded using CCD. The temperature fields in the gas phase are examined by a set of fine thermocouples. On the basis ...

  • Removal mechanism of endosulfan sorption onto wood charcoal

    Endosulfan is among the most widely used pesticides in developing countries and other parts of the world and has been found to contaminate various parts of the environment, including drinking water sources. In an earlier study to find a suitable adsorbent to remove endosulfan, wood charcoal was found to give promising results. In the present study, the process controlling the rate of endosulfan ...

  • Is waste heat the silver bullet?

    The energy industry tends to get stuck on certain words. Silver bullet is one of them. Insiders and policymakers often like to say there is no silver bullet to fix US energy woes. We need a portfolio of solutions – renewables, efficiency, smart grid, transmission expansion, coal sequestration, etc. That may be true, but Tom Casten begs to differ. Casten is a bit of a rock star in the field of ...

  • Russia turns to wooded heartlands for clean energy

    Russia’s heated conversations with oil company Shell reminded the world of its new role as one of the world’s major oil and gas producers – the debate centred around control of Sakhalin-2, the largest direct foreign investment project in Russia. It will create the world's biggest liquefied natural gas plant in the far east of Russia. Reports suggest that the Russian government wishes to take a ...

  • Much light, little heat efficiency

    Energy efficiency in the US is much light and little heat – literally.  Government policy pays a great deal of attention to saving electricity, but focuses little on the thermal energy we waste.  “Policy is electricity-centric in the US. Unless you are making kilowatts, the most efficient investments are off the radar,” said Rob Thornton, president of the ...

  • Physical properties of wood pellets from a novel pelletising process

    In this paper a novel pelletising process is described utilising one-axial compression. Compression tests of saw dust samples were conducted at different applied forces, moisture contents, process temperatures and hold up times using a compression cell powered by an Instron testing machine. Additionally the effect of heating in saturated and unsaturated atmosphere was studied. The densities of ...

  • Focus Bioenergy No 7 2004: Biofuels - heating for the future

    Biofuels for heating of homes and properties is rapidly making headway. Environmentally friendly, comfortable and price-worthy small-scale heating with biofuels is done using pellets or briquettes. Changing an oil burner for a pellets burner or replacing electric heating with a pellet-burning stove is often very profitable. It demands less effort than wood firing but somewhat more work than using ...
