Variation, effect and control of biomass quality in CHP

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


There exist a growing interest to utilise renewable fuels in multifuel applications for energy production. The main reasons for this are environmetal – reduction of CO2 emissions as well as emissions of NOx and SO2. Cofiring, defined as simultaneous combustion of different fuels in the same boiler, provides an alternative to achieve lower greenhouse gas emission in energy and power production. Utilisation of solid biofuels and wastes, however, sets new demands not only for plant operators but also for boiler design, process control system as well as for fuel handling systems and fuel blend control. Physical and chemical properties of biomass affects highly on it’s combustion characteristics compared to traditional fuels like coal and peat that’s a common fuel in Finland.
