The main objective of STOP is to develop new strategies for improved operating conditions control in biomass and biomass residues combustion plants through:
- The utilization of more homogenous fuel with minimized season variation
- Optimized fuel in terms of pollutant emissions
- Innovative methods for fuel upgrading with emphasis on torrefaction
STOP is a Knowledge-building Project with User involvement (KMB) co-funded by the Research Council of Norway in the RENERGI-programme. The project stretches over 4 years with an annual budget of 3.5 mill NOK (2010-2013).
