Wood Heating Articles

  • Fuel Production

    In the processing of regenerative energy carriers like biofuel, wood, waste fraction with high heat value, or animal meal to synthetic gas, the carbon dioxide has to be removed. The gas is forwarded by a compressor to an absorption cell, where it flows up through a support medium aggregate. This aggregate is being sprayed from above with water that is conveyed by a ...

  • Possibility of biomass gasification in tea manufacturing industries in Assam, India

    Tea manufacturing industries in India use natural gas, tea drying oil, wood, and coal for process heat. India is the second largest producer of tea [(1,137.07, China 1,761.00) million kilogram] in 2012. About 0.6–1.2 kg of coal is required to produce one kilogram of dried tea with average moisture of 2.5–3 percentage (w.b.). Biomass gasification is an established renewable energy technology for ...

  • 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 ...

  • Evaluating the energy and the carbon stored from tropical acacias: the first steps

    Because of their relevance as a source of energy as woodfuel, carbon storage capacity and their environmental characteristics in ecosystems, tropical leguminous trees are suitable for their management on plantations to produce biomass for energy or carbon sequestration for climate change mitigation. The main purpose of this paper is to present the results of a research project to develop a ...

  • 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 ...

  • Evaluating the concentrations of partitioned heavy metals in fly ash from a medium-sized (32 MW) municipal district heating plant with respect to the new Finnish limit values

    The total heavy metal concentrations in the fly ash were clearly lower than the Finnish limit values for forestry fertilisers, and for material used as an earth construction agent, which came into force in March 2007 and in June 2006, respectively. The relatively low heavy metal concentrations, the alkaline pH (12.5) and the elevated Ca concentration (139.5 g kg−1; d.w.) indicate that the fly ash ...

  • Bioenergy and the convergence of the markets for fuel, food, and fibre

    Don Roberts said four key variables are driving the economics of biofuel production: the price of fossil fuels, the cost of the feedstock, the “plethora” of conversion technology, and regulations, which stimulate demand. These variables are in flux, which presents a dilemma for investors, who “hate uncertainty.” Conversion technologies are at varying stages of market readiness. As “some of the ...

  • Bioenergy opportunities in the pulp and paper and sawmill industries

    Fernando Preto said the Canada Centre for Mineral and Energy Technology (CANMET) Energy Technology Centre in Ottawa is “not a fundamental research lab…. We help industry develop technologies.” The Biomass and Renewables Group “took a different approach, asking, ‘What’s the converted value of one dry tonne of wood?’” Preto’s team made a number of assumptions about pellet-generated heat, power, and ...

  • 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 ...
