Small Scale Biomass Combustion Plant for Power Generation: From Waste Wood to Profit

E. Báscones
A biomass combustion pilot plant for small scale power generation was designed, developed and constructed in Spain. This is the first of these characteristics working in Spain: a full-scale demonstration plant that generates heat (800 kWt) and electricity (125 kWe) by means of an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC). To achieve this aim, the state-of-the-art of the Organic Rankine Cycle was studied. Also, the combustion process for different biomasses was experimentally characterized in order to select...
