Neue Rohstoffsortimente für die Holzpelletsproduktion – Einfluss eines erhöhten Rindenanteils auf die Verbrennungseigenschaften

Haslinger W, Friedl G, Wopienka E, Emhofer W. Neue Rohstoffsortimente für die Holzpelletsproduktion – Einfluss eines erhöhten Rindenanteils auf die Verbrennungseigenschaften, 9. Industrieforum Pellets 2009, 7th-9th of October 2009, Stuttgart, Germany.

Details

Holzpellets werden in zunehmendem Maße aus Hackschnitzel hergestellt. Es ist davon auszugehen, dass diese Veränderung der Rohstoffbasis zu erhöhten Aschegehalten im Brennstoff führt und zu Schwierigkeiten bei der Nutzung führen kann. Die vorliegende Arbeit kommt zum Schluss, dass moderate Anteile (< 5%) sauberer Rinde zu keinen wesentlichen Verschlackungen führen. Bei Verunreinigung oder / und sehr hohen Rindenanteilen ist mit
Verschlackungsproblemen jedenfalls zu rechnen.

Quality Check for European Wood Pellets

Wopienka E, Griesmayr S, Friedl G, Haslinger W. Quality Check for European Wood Pellets, 17th European Biomass Conference 2009, 29th of June-3rd of July 2009, Hamburg, Germany. p 1821-1823.

Details

In the presented work the fuel quality and basic data about production processes of wood pellets from
all over Europe are investigated. For this purpose pellets producers were interviewed and fuel samples were analysed. Information from 91 companies was evaluated, covering about 50% of the European pellets production capacity, and pellets samples of 51 companies from 18 different countries were examined. It was found, that the raw material for pellets production is mainly taken from local resources. 75% of the plants process soft wood, whereas the use of hard wood is more common in Eastern Europe, Italy, Spain and France. Regarding the fuel properties of the pellets, differences were mainly found with regard to ash content and mechanical durability. In spite of these strong variations, almost all samples fulfilled the requirements according to the respective quality standard declared, and a clear correlation of valid standards and available pellets qualities was observed.

State-of-the-art and comparison of incineration and gasification of residues and waste

Wilk, V. State-of-the-art and comparison of incineration and gasification of residues and waste, Doctoral Thesis, Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, 2009.

Details

More and more waste is generated every year, which has to be disposed. There is a legal obligation to treat waste before it can be landfilled in the European Union. Thus, thermal waste treatment is a very important issue.
In this work two pathways of thermal waste treatment, incineration and gasification, are compared. For this purpose, literature on both technologies has been reviewed and the stateof‐art technology for waste incineration and gasification is presented. The comparison highlights the strengths and weaknesses of both technologies and identifies future potentials. In Europe waste incineration is the state‐of‐the‐art technology ensuring destruction of the pollutants and allowing recovery of the energy content of the waste. A waste incineration plant consists of a furnace, where the waste is incinerated and the chemically bonded energy of the waste is discharged as heat. The hot flue gases pass the heat to the water in the heating surfaces of the steam generator. The energy of the waste can be used for the generation of hot water, steam of electrical power. Then the flue gas has to be cleaned in the air pollution control system. Dust is precipitated, HCl and HF is removed in an acid scrubber and SO2 in an alkaline scrubber. A catalytic reaction destroys dioxins and furans and reduces the emissions of NOx. Due to waste incineration the volume of the residues, which have to be landfilled, is
reduced by 90%. The second pathway of thermal waste treatment is waste gasification, where solid carbonaceous materials are converted into combustible gases by reaction with gasification agents. Due to gas production, not only the energy content of the waste can be recovered but the product range is extended. The producer gas can be converted into heat and power in a conventional steam boiler but also combusted in gas engines or turbines with higher efficiencies. In a combined cycle plant the hot exhaust gas of the turbine can be used in a heat recovery steam generator to increase the efficiency even more. After further cleaning the producer gas is also a suitable feedstock for synthesis of liquid fuels, synthetic natural gas and other chemicals.
Waste gasification processes have been developed in the past, but the plants have been shut down because of economic reasons and/or technical problems. However, important research has been done in the field of biomass gasification and thus gasification technology has been improved markedly. The fluidised bed gasifier in Güssing is one of the most successful examples; this technology is about to be commercialised. Considering these developments, there is definitely interesting potential for waste gasification now and the design of a new waste gasification process based on the findings in biomass gasification will be the scope of future research work.

Tar Content and Composition in Producer Gas of Fluidized Bed Gasification and Low Temperature Pyrolysis of Straw and Wood – Influence of Temperature

Aigner I, Wolfesberger U, Hofbauer H. Tar Content and Composition in Producer Gas of Fluidized Bed Gasification and Low Temperature Pyrolysis of Straw and Wood – Influence of Temperature, ICPS 2009, 1st-3rd of September 2009, Vienna, Austria.

Details

The global warming, the increasing CO2 emission, the combustion of and dependency on fossil
fuels, as well as the high-energy price have resulted in an increasing demand in renewable energy
sources. Biomass, as a renewable energy source, has the potential to contribute to the future energy
mix in various ways. In thermo-chemical biomass conversion processes, especially gasification and pyrolysis, the tar content and its composition is a major subject. Due to the various processes examined at VUT, this
work picks up the opportunity to compare the different tar amounts and compositions at different
temperatures and process parameters. The tar content and composition in the producer gas of steam
gasification of straw and wood as well as the tar yields of low temperature pyrolysis of straw are
displayed in the following work. Gasification experiments were carried out in a 100 kW dual fluidized bed steam gasifier at a temperature range of 700° C to 870° C. Pyrolysis experiments were conducted in a rotary kiln
reactor at temperatures between 600° C and 630° C. For better understanding of tar formation during thermo-chemical conversion of biomass the tar content and composition in the producer gas was analyzed with a gas chromatograph coupled with a mass spectrometer. Main observation was that at higher temperatures the tar composition is shifted to higher molecular tars as poly aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). Key tar components at lower temperatures (pyrolysis) are phenols. These results give the opportunity to analyse tar formation in different thermochemical conversion steps, therefore, for the future a better understanding of tar formation in large scale facility’s should be gained. This means lower tar content in the producer gas for gasification processes and an achievement of required pyrolysis oil yields for pyrolysis.

Unearthing waste`s potential for 100% renewable energy systems

Ragossnig A. Unearthing waste`s potential for 100% renewable energy systems. 5th SDEWES-conference 2009, 29th of September-3rd of October, Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Details

This paper focusses on the elaboration of the potential of the waste sector to contribute to the provision of 100% renewable energy systems. Waste is an abundant and locally available ressource and in many cases it is (at least partially) of biogenic origin, therefore pursuing political goals in waste management by energetic utilization of waste contributes towards achieving political goals in the energy as well as climate policy, too. However, it is shown based on the example of Austria that looking at energy systems on a national or international scale the waste sector is only able to contribute very little to the provision of the overall energy needed. It is different if one looks at specific energy systems in industrial sectors or on individual industrial sites. Here one must aknowledge that the energetic utilization of waste can have a high impact towards establishing renewable energy systems. Exemplarily this is shown by discussing the Austrian pulp & paper as well as the cement industry sector.

Straw, Miscanthus, maize, and horse manure were reviewed in terms of fuel characteristics. They were tested in existing boilers, and the particulate and gaseous emissions were monitored. The ash was analyzed for the presence of sintered material. All the fuels showed problems with ash lumping and slag formation. Different boiler technologies showed different operational performances. Maize and horse manure are problematic fuels regarding NOx and particulate emissions. Miscanthus was the best fuel tested. Due to the big variation of fuel properties and therefore combustion behavior of agricultural biomass, further R&D is required to adapt the existing boilers for these fuels.

Details

For an appropriate operation of a heat exchanger it is very helpful to know its dynamic behaviour. To this a simple sufficient accurate nonlinear model for the description of the dynamic behaviour is derived on the basis of a gas tube heat exchanger. Due to the general approach used for the derivation the model could be adaptet easily for other types of heat exchangers. The presented model can be used to estimate not measured physical values, to monitor the deposit formation in the heat exchanger and as a basis for the design of a model based control strategy. © Oldenbourg Wissenschaftsverlag.
