Combining Solid Biomass Combustion and Stirling Technology

N. Senkel & W. Siemers
Biomass is one pillar in renewable energy utilization. In all applications – heat, power and fuel – high conversion efficiency is necessary. Decentralised electricity production in combination with and based on biomass still finds some difficulties in real applications. There is also a deficit of proven technologies, especially in small-scale gasification and use of producer gas in internal combustion engines. One concept favoured in a recent project is the connection of a wood chip furnace...
