Effect of torrefaction on properties of pellets produced from woody biomass
Torrefaction has been recognized as a promising strategy to improve handling and storage properties of wood-based pellets, thus producing a uniform-quality commodity with high energy density and hydrophobicity. In this work, pellets produced from spruce stem wood, bark, and forest residues were...
How to Produce Green Coke?
According to the Financial Times the steel industry emissions accounted for 7-9% of total GHG emissions worldwide in 2019. The main share is directly related to the use of fossil coke and coal as fuels and reducing agents. About four solutions can be adopted to address such issue: direct reduction...
Empirical Kinetic Models for the Combustion of Charcoals and Biomasses in the Kinetic Regime
Syngas Production, Storage, Compression and Use in Gas Turbines
This chapter analyses syngas production through pyrolysis and gasification, its compression and its use in gas turbines. Syngas compression can be performed during or after thermal treatment processes. Important points are discussed related to syngas ignition, syngas explosion limit at high...
The Effects of Pyrolysis Conditions and Feedstocks on the Properties and Gasification Reactivity of Charcoal from Woodchips
Carbon Nanotubes for Hydrogen Purification and Storage
Hydrogen storage and purification processes represent two key steps in hydrogen fuel production and supply chain, and for this reason they have a critical role in the development of the hydrogen economy. On one hand, the use of carbon membranes can help to overcome some disadvantages of the already...
Emission characteristics of particulate matters from a 30 MW biomass-fired power plant in China
The emission characteristics of particulate matters from a full-scale biomass-fired power plant equipped with bag filters were investigated. Results show that particle size distribution at the inlet of bag filter from the combustion of blended feedstocks is bimodal, while that of dry bark feedstocks...
