Lignocellulosic Energy Crops Combustion Operation Conditions Impact on their Bottom Ashes Transformation Behaviour and Fractionation Based on Pilot-Scale and Full-Scale Measurements

M. Díaz, F. Sebastián, D. Boström & C. Boman
Availability of traditional biomass fuels such as woody sources for the heating market is restricted to economic considerations (e.g. consumption in paper industries) and locations of these raw materials for pellets production. In Spain, non-traditional biomass sources such as Mediterranean energy crops are starting to be seen as potential future biomass fuels. However, due to their complex chemical composition, they might require specific combustion technologies adapted to their combustion behaviour. Focused on this goal, the...
