Fluidized Bed Combustion System Best Match For Agroindustrial Waste Biomass

Fluidized bed combustion (FBC) systems are widely used for power generation. FBC systems can be modified to be circulating FBC (CFBC), where the material is circulated back into the combustion chamber for burning up.  FBC systems are generally limited to a size of less than 300 MW, but there is powerplant  in Lagisza, Poland who designed it to 460 MW and hopes can be scaled up to 600-800 MW in the future. FBC and CFBC system is important because coal power plant that has long operated can be repowered, opening the possibility of cofiring with biomass on a wider scale conditions. The advantages of FBC systems include:  

-Ability to burn fuels with a wide range in moisture content, particle size, and density. And the potential for this type of fuel coal, biomass, tire-derivated-fuel, agricultural residues, and urban wood wastes.
-Heat transfer from combustion  more efficient so that the combustion temperature is lower, which in turn will reduce NOx emissions.
-Lower costs for SO2 capture because limestone can be added directly to the medium fluidization at a lower cost than installing scrubbers after combustion.

Coal power plant to install FBC  the system as part of a retrofit or new plant construction will be very open to the use of biomass (even if without biomass at first). FBC system has many advantages associated with the ability of fuel flexibility. Transport of biomass from feedstock sources to power plants efficiently if compacted (densification) is made to be like pellets. Wood pellets made ​​from woody biomass is increasingly limited its availability unless intensively pursued as create energy plantations, while the agro-industry wastes such as oil palm biomass is widely available and has not been utilized so that the potential for densification as fuel in FBC systems. Aspects of the environment, climate change and globalwarming is  major factors is the use of biomass fuels.

Carbon Positive, Carbon Carbon Neutral or Negative?

Greenhouse gases from burning fossilfuels have caused the Earth's temperature to rise. Increasing the temperature of the earth or global warming causing numerous disasters due to climate change in a number of places on earth. When greenhouse gases not controlled then the result of damage to the environment of the earth will be more severe. Therefore, efforts were made to reduce greenhouse gases as the cause of environmental problems. In general, there are four common scenarios to prevent the global warming effect of CO2 in the atmosphere gradually, namely: 1.increasing the efficiency so the fossil fuel consumption decreases, 2.mix of renewable fuels with fossil fuels so that fossil fuel consumption has also decreased, 3.substitution of fossil fuels with renewable fuels 4.and the absorption of CO2 in the atmosphere so that the concentration of greenhouse gases can be reduced. Here are some basic terms related to the above problems. Based on the origin and the effect that CO2 in the atmo…

5 The Largest Wood Pellets Producers Today

References are needed to make something no less quality or even better, as well as for a wood pellet production facility. Indonesia with extensive land available,fertile and tropical climate needs to get complete and qualified reference especially on wood pellet production so that they can optimize its potency. Diversification of energy is also desperately needed by Indonesia so that it has strong resilience and energy sovereignty, especially with its current condition which has become a net importer of petroleum, even projected in the range of approximately 10 years future Indonesia's oil will be exhausted. The following description of the 5 largest wood pellet plant today can be used as a reference.
Enviva was established in 2004, currently Enviva operates 7 wood pellet plants with total production of more than 3 million tons / year. Some of its wood pellet production is exported to the UK and Europe. A number of ports are used For shipment or export of wood pellet, ie po…
