Abstract

The key objective of this paper is to present the solar enhanced drying system developed at VTT Jyväskylä, Finland. In addition, the first lessons learned are published. The drying system at VTT comprises 6 flat plate solar collecting modules, each of 2 m2 area (total 12 m2 corresponding roughly 10 kWpeak) with air ducting for supply of heated air to the biomass drying equipment. The solar modules are placed on the roof and they have been installed to maximize the solar energy utilisation for the whole day, not just the day peak. The biomass drying equipment is installed inside the building and it has drying cabinets with separate trays for loading the material. The overall drying facility has the needed measurements and control systems for different testing purposes. The device is modular and can be deployed easily.
