Characteristics of agro and wood biomass combustion in the stream of inert material
Czestochowa University of Technology, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, Institute of Thermal Machinery, al. Armii Krajowej 21, 42-201 Czestochowa, Poland
Agricultural residual biomass presents a high potential for energy use around the world, often not utilized to a large extent due to its significant differences with respect to other biomass types, such as the one of wood origin. These differences are mainly related to the characteristics of its ashes (quantity and composition) which increase certain problematic phenomena during combustion, among them ash sintering. The main purpose of this article is the experimental study of these issues for various agro pellets and wood pellets, analyzed in various operating conditions in a laboratory reactor with a circulating bed.
