During the European demonstration project Bioelectricity Crops, two energy crops, Triticale (Triticosecale Wittm.) and Brassica carinata, were evaluated as potential solid biofuels for the biomass power plant of 25 MWe located in Sangüesa and operated by the company Acciona Energia (Spain). Objectives of the experiment was to check at a pilot scale the combustion and emission parameters of both energy crops before evaluating them in the industrial biomass power plant. The raw materials were characterised...
