Thermochemical biorefinery based on dimethyl ether as intermediate: Technoeconomic assessment
Thermochemical biorefinery based on dimethyl ether (DME) as an intermediate is studied. DME is converted into methyl acetate, which can either be hydrogenated to ethanol or sold as a co-product. Considering this option ...
Tar yield and composition from poultry litter gasification in a fluidised bed reactor: Effects of equivalence ratio, temperature and limestone addition
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019)
Air gasification of poultry litter was experimentally investigated in a laboratory scale bubbling fluidised bed gasifier. Gasification tests were conducted at atmospheric pressure using silica sand as the bed material. ...
Devolatilization of a single fuel particle in a fluidized bed under oxy-combustion conditions. Part B: Modeling and comparison with measurements
A detailed one-dimensional transient model is developed to describe the conversion of a single fuel particle in O2/N2 and O2/CO2 atmospheres in a fluidized bed (FB). The model takes into account the main relevant phenomena ...
Poultry Litter Gasification in a Fluidized Bed Reactor: Effects of Gasifying Agent and Limestone Addition
(American Chemical Society, 2016)
Air and air-steam gasification of poultry litter was experimentally studied in a laboratory scale bubbling fluidized bed gasifier at atmospheric pressure using silica sand as the bed material. The effects of equivalence ...
Downstream evolution of unconfined vortices: mechanical and thermal aspects
(Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2002)
We present a numerical study of the downstream evolution (mechanical and thermal) of vortex-jet cores whose velocity and temperature fields far from the axis match a family of inviscid and non-conducting vortices. The ...
Effect of CO2 on oxy-fuel combustion of coal-char particles in a fluidized bed: Modeling and comparison with the conventional mode of combustion
A char combustion model is developed to study the effect of CO2 on the combustion of coarse char particles under oxy-fuel conditions in a fluidized bed (FB). It is a transient one-dimensional model, taking into account the ...
Ignition behavior of single coal particle in a fluidized bed under O2/CO2 and O2/N2 atmospheres: A combination of visual image and particle temperature
Single coal particle ignition behavior was studied in a two-dimensional (200 mm × 20 mm × 400 mm) fluidized bed under O2/N2 and O2/CO2 atmosphere with O2 volume concentration in the range of 0–40%, by a combination of ...
Application of biomass gasification fly ash for brick manufacturing
Biomass gasification technology offers an attractive way to use low-grade fuels in energy production with high efficiency and low environmental impact. However, an issue calling for further development is the volume and ...
Modeling biomass char gasification kinetics for improving prediction of carbon conversion in a fluidized bed gasifier
Gasification of biomass in a fluidized bed (FB) was modeled based on kinetic data obtained from previously conducted thermogravimetric analysis. The thermogravimetric analysis experiments were designed to closely resemble ...
The effects of calcium and potassium on CO2 gasification of birch wood in a fluidized bed
Birch wood was leached of its naturally occurring ash forming elements and doped with three concentrations of calcium or potassium before being gasified in a laboratory bubbling fluidized bed reactor. The wood samples were ...
