Book Description :

Abstract The world is currently aiming to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels and to achieve a sustainable renewable supply. Renewable energies represent a diversity of energy sources that can help to maintain the equilibrium of different ecosystems. Among the various sources of renewable energy, biomass is considered carbon neutral because the carbon dioxide released during its use is already part of the carbon cycle. Increasing the use of biomass for energy can help to reduce the negative CO2 impact on the environment and help meet the targets established in the Kyoto Protocol. Energy from biomass can be produced from different processes, including thermochemical (direct combustion, gasification, and pyrolysis), biological (anaerobic digestion, fermentation), or chemical (esterification) technologies. There are lot challenges in using biomass for energy applications. To name few low bulk density, high moisture content, irregular size and shape, hydrophilic nature and low calorific value. In commercial scale operation large quantities of biomass are needed and this will create problems associated with storage and transportation. Furthermore, grinding raw biomass with high moisture content is very challenging as there are no specific equipments and can increase the costs and in some cases it becomes highly impossible. All of these drawbacks led to development of some pretreatment techniques to make biomass more suitable for fuel applications. One of the promising techniques is torrefaction. Torrefaction is heating the biomass in an inert environment or reduced environment. During torrefaction biomass losses moisture, becomes more brittle and with increased energy density values. There are different techniques used for torrefaction of biomass. Fixed bed, bubbling sand bed and moving bed are the most common ones used. The use of microwaves for torrefaction purposes has not been explored. In the present study we looked into the torrefaction of biomass using the regular and microwaves and their effect on proximate and ultimate composition. Studies indicated that microwave torrefaction is a good way to torrefy the biomass in short periods of time. A maximum calorific value of 21 MJ/kg is achievable at 6 min residence time compared to 15 min using the dry torrefaction technique. Increasing the residence time increased the carbon content where a maximum carbon content of 52.20 % was achievable at lower residence time. The loss of volatiles is comparatively lower compared to dry torrefaction technique. Moisture content of microwave torrefied samples was in between 2-2.5 % (w.b).

Book Description :

Research and deployment of renewable energy sources are increasing due to several major drivers, including the needs for energy independence and security, renewable energy alternatives to fossil fuels, and greenhouse gas emissions reduction. Biomass is an abundant resource and, with careful planning and management, can be considered a carbon neutral and sustainable energy source, making it attractive for renewable energy applications. Additionally, biomass does not suffer from intermittency issues common of other renewable energy sources. Biomass can be utilized through a variety of energy conversion methods, including combustion, gasification and pyrolysis. Biomass can also be upgraded through mild pyrolysis, called torrefaction, rendering the biomass with fuel characteristics that more closely resemble coal. One woody biomass of particular interest in the western United States is beetle kill pine. Significant amounts of this biomass can be found in National Forests and pose a substantial safety risk to people, local infrastructure, and waterways. Management of these dead trees is a priority for the U.S. Forest Service which has recognized their potential as a fuel and energy feedstock. In addition to productive utilization of waste resources, such as beetle kill, co-combustion of biomass with coal is the most near-term, low cost means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the electricity generation sector. Other co-conversion methods, such as co-gasification, are also attractive and relatively readily implementable options for biomass utilization. However, for biomass to be implemented in commercial reactors, its conversion characteristics frequently need to be tailored for efficient conversion. Pretreatment methods, such as torrefaction, and integrated conversion systems, such as the utilization of biochar produced from pyrolysis, offer great promise for improved biomass feedstocks. This research presents a multifaceted study of the utilization and co-utilization of woody biomass, with an emphasis on beetle kill pine, for energy sector emission reductions through a variety of analysis pathways. Experimental investigations of solid fuel conversion processes, including torrefaction, pyrolysis, combustion, and gasification, using a variety of fuel types and fuel blends in several laboratory reactor apparatuses are presented along with kinetic models of fuel conversion behaviors and co-conversion fuel interactions. Additionally, the systems-level feasibility of co-firing has been explored through techno-economic assessment of biomass availability and life cycle analysis of co-firing woody biomass with coal, and results are presented. Overall results from this work demonstrate and advance the feasibility of co-utilization of woody biomass as an effective and feasible means of reducing energy sector emissions.

Book Description :

It is now a well-acclaimed fact that burning fossil fuels and deforestation are major contributors to climate change. Biomass from plants can serve as an alternative renewable and carbon-neutral raw material for the production of bioenergy. Low densities of 40-60 kg/m3 for lignocellulosic and 200-400 kg/m3 for woody biomass limits their application for energy purposes. Prior to use in energy applications these materials need to be densified. The densified biomass can have bulk densities over 10 times the raw material helping to significantly reduce technical limitations associated with storage, loading and transportation. Pelleting, briquetting, or extrusion processing are commonly used methods for densification. The aim of the present research is to develop a comprehensive review of biomass processing that includes densification, preprocessing, modeling and optimization. The specific objective include carrying out a technical review on (a) mechanisms of particle bonding during densification; (b) methods of densification including extrusion, briquetting, pelleting, and agglomeration; (c) effects of process and feedstock variables and biomass biochemical composition on the densification (d) effects of preprocessing such as grinding, preheating, steam explosion, and torrefaction on biomass quality and binding characteristics; (e) models for understanding the compression characteristics; and (f) procedures for response surface modeling and optimization.

Book Description :

The modern technology nowadays has led to a high consumption of energy where renewable energy sources become one of the hottest topics among the scientists. Biomass, as one of the promising renewable energy sources become the most attractive energy source in the world. Hence, this study aims to produce the high quality of torrefied oil palm biomass for efficient energy application. Torrefaction is known as the mild form of pyrolysis where the process occurs at atmospheric pressure and the temperature ranging of 473-573 K with the absence of oxygen. The raw materials selected for the study are the empty fruit bunch (EFB), mesocarp fiber and the kernel shell. The main reason of selected oil palm waste as the biomass raw material is due to its availability as Malaysia is the second largest producer of palm oil in the world. The experiment was carried out by using a tubular reactor which was located at the Gas Engineering Lab of University Malaysia Pahang. Results obtained showed that the powder form of all the samples have fully decomposed after torrefaction process, hence, the experiment was carried on with the fibrous form of samples for a better scale of study. The calorific value (CV) determined using a bomb calorimeter and the result collected showed a trend of increased in CV for all the samples started from EFB to kernel shell as the temperature increased. While for the case of mass yield, the trend was decreased for all the samples when the temperature increased along the torrefaction process. This was due to the thermal decomposition of the structure of samples during the experiment. This had directly affected the trend of energy yield by all the samples as the optimization of energy yield was not achieved at 100% except for kernel shell at 523K and 573K. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) test was also carried out in order to determine the component and chemical compositions which existed before and after the experiment, and results showed that the structure of the samples was mainly remain the same after the process.

Renewable energies represent a diversity of energy sources that can help to maintain the equilibrium of different ecosystems. Among the various sources of renewable energy, biomass is finding more uses as it is considered carbon neutral since the carbondioxide released during its use is already part of the carbon cycle (Arias et al., 2008).

Energy from biomass can be produced from different processes like thermochemical (combustion, gasification, and pyrolysis), biological (anaerobic digestion, fermentation) or chemical (esterification) where direct combustion can provide a direct near-term energy solution (Arias et al., 2008). Some of the inherent problems with raw biomass materials, like low bulk density, high moisture content, hydrophilic nature and low calorific value, limit the ease of use of biomass for energy purposes (Arias et al., 2008). In fact, due to its low energy density compared to fossil fuels, high volumes of biomass will be needed; adding to problems associated with storage, transportation and feed handling at a cogeneration plant. Furthermore, grinding biomass pulverizes, can be very costly and in some cases impractical. All of these drawbacks have given rise to the development of new technologies in order to increase the quality of biomass fuels. The purpose of the work is mainly in four areas 1) Overview of the torrefaction process and to do a literature review on i) Physical properties of torrefied raw material and torrefaction gas composition. 2) Basic principles in design of packed bed i) Equations governing the flow of material in packed bed ii) Equations governing the flow of the gases in packed bed iii) Effect of physical properties of the raw materials on the packed bed design 3) Design of packed bed torrefier of different capacities. 4) Development of an excel sheet for calculation of length and diameter of the packed bed column based on the design considerations.
