Abstract The combustion properties of torrefied mixture of empty fruit bunch (EFB) and polyethylene (PE) plastics were investigated experimentally, for weight ratio of 95:5 (EFB: PE) and 90:10. The mixture samples were obtained from briquettes that were produced under various briquetting temperatures (150°C-190°C). The torrefaction was performed at constant temperature of 250°C and at

Biomass Gasification - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Ausilio Bauen, in Encyclopedia of Energy, 2004. 1 Introduction. Biomass gasification allows the conversion of different biomass feedstocks to a more convenient gaseous fuel that can then be used in conventional equipment (e.g., boilers, engines, and turbines) or advanced equipment (e.g., fuel cells) for the generation of heat and electricity. The conversion to a gaseous fuel provides a wider

Pulverized coal-fired boiler - Wikipedia

A pulverized coal-fired boiler is an industrial or utility boiler that generates thermal energy by burning pulverized coal (also known as powdered coal or coal dust since it is as fine as face powder in cosmetic makeup) that is blown into the firebox.. The basic idea of a firing system using pulverised fuel is to use the whole volume of the furnace for the combustion of solid fuels.
