### Evaluation of Ash Melting Behaviour of Solid Biomass Based on Fuel Analyses

E. Wopienka, L. Carvalho, M. Öhman, M. Schwabl & W. Haslinger
In the presented work the range of variation for particular fuel properties is shown for different types of solid biomass, and the relevance of these properties with regard to ash melting behavior is investigated. Fuels are classified based on elemental composition and ash content, and resulting groups are compared to type and origin of the raw material basis and ash melting properties. Selected indices and equations for an assessment of the ash melting properties are...
