STable OPerating conditions for biomass combustion plants

The main objectives in STOP are 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
