Abstract

When utilizing biomass as fuel, the high moisture content of the biomass affects strongly the combustion process such as lowering the flame temperature and/or the boiler efficiency. The low flame temperature could result incomplete combustion and/or other operational problems. To overcome these, biomass is often dried before combustion. The level of drying is therefore a very important parameter, which strongly influence the economies of the utilization of biofuel. The drying ...
