Evaluation of a New System Combining Wood-Burning Stove, Flue Gas Heat Exchanger and Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery in Highly-Insulated Houses
The performance of an innovative flue gas heat exchanger (FGHE) located at the exit of a wood-burning stove (log or pellet) to pre-heat ventilation air has been assessed for highly insulated detached houses. For this purpose, transient thermal simulations (TRNSYS + TRNFlow) were carried out on a Nor...

Pyrolysis of untreated and various torrefied stem wood, stump, and bark of Norway spruce
The effect of torrefaction severity (temperature and residence time) was studied on the thermal decomposition of different parts of Norway spruce (stem wood, stump, and bark). The volatile content of the torrefied samples was characterized by pyrolysis–gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (Py–GC/MS)...
Effect of processing conditions on the constant-volume carbonization of biomass
The effects of processing conditions (closed versus open reactor, pressure, temperature, soaking time, biomass loading, heating rate, and fuel particle size) on product yields and char properties from constant-volume carbonization are reported. Increasing the pretest, inert-gas, system pressure from...
