Reduction of organic emissions by using a multistage

Abstract Organic emissions during the thermal drying process are strongly dependent on the drying temperature In the traditional single stage drying system the inlet temperature of the drying air has to be relatively high in order to keep the airflow for drying small In the multistage drying system the drying airflow is heated up again after the first drying stage with higher moisture

Algal Biofuels: A Credible Prospective?

Drying is the most energy intensive process and accounts for more than 50% of the total energy requirement of the algae oil extraction process The energy demand for drying is met by fossil fuels hence a more sustainable method for drying is required to eliminate the negative energy balance of algae biofuel processing

Impact of moisture content on instant catapult steam

Nowadays lignocellulosic biomass offers a promising alternative to produce biofuel owing to its abundance renewability and sustainability However the recalcitrant nature of biomass requires additional pretreatment steps to make it susceptible to cellulolytic enzymes (Mosier et al 2005) Generally pretreatment efficiency depends on low moisture content and small particle size of the

EP1214549A1

The invention relates to a method of co-firing biofuel in a boiler designed for burning a fossil main fuel such as coal brown coal or peat the method comprising the steps of first grinding the main fuel for burning then feeding the main fuel with the help of a carrier gas into at least one burner and burning the main fuel in the boiler combustion chamber

Miscanthus (Miscanthus x giganteus) for Biofuel

2 Giant miscanthus (Miscanthus x giganteus Greef et Deu ) is a perennial warm-season Asian grass with the C4 photosynthetic pathway Miscanthus species have been used for forage and thatching in Japan for thousands of years managed through burning and grazing in vast prairies similar to those managed by Native American tribes in the central United States (Stewart et al 2009)

Sorghum Drying and Storage
