High-Temperature Kinetics of Fine Biomass Char Particles in Air and CO2

L. Lin, E. Gustafsson & M. Strand
Knowledge of reliable chemical kinetics of char always plays significant roles in the modelling, design and optimization of processes during biofuel thermochemical conversions.The determination of reaction kinetics of char in the high-temperature range still highly depends on the extrapolation of results from kinetic data determined at lower temperatures due to mass and heat transfer limitations. In this work an aerosol-based method was used to investigate the reactivity of singly-distributed char particles with aerodynamic diameters between...
