The possibility to directly use solid biomass for electricity generation has several advantages compared with usual solutions which typically need large sizes and/or complex fuel processing treatments. University of Pisa, jointly with some local manufacturers, has designed, built and tested an externally fired micro gas turbine (EFMGT) supplying 75kW of electricity from the direct use of solid biomasses, as well as useful heat (200-250kW) for local thermal users [1]. The plant is able to compete...
