Emissions of a Farm-Size Biomass Boiler Fuelled with Agricultural Residues: Benefits of the Electrofilter

S. Silvestri, A. Cristoforetti & G. Picchi
Agricultural residues represent a strategic resource of biomass for energy. Nevertheless many concerns about agro-residues combustion are arisen by the fact that common management of vineyards and orchards imply the use of agrochemicals treatments. Inorganic compounds may adhere to the residues surface or be included in the very plants tissues: combustion of such a material could produce pollutants in smoke or ashes, lowering the fuel quality of biomass and reducing its potential uses. Focusing on...
