  1. 1. Wood Fuel Pellets: Sawdust Drying in the Energy System

    Author : Magnus Ståhl; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wood fuel pellets; sawdust; drying; pellet production; recirculation; VOC; system integration; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Abstract : In 2004, the amount of wood fuel pellets used in Sweden was 1 256 000 tons, it was mostly used in large scale burning for district heating. Over the last 10 years, a significant increase in pellet production has occurred and today the preferred raw materials for pellet production, i.e., dry sawdust and wood shavings, are insufficient.

  2. 2. Improving Wood Fuel Pellets for Household Use : Perspectives on Quality, Efficiency and Environment

    Author : Magnus Ståhl; Bengt Månsson; Johan Vinterbäck; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wood fuel pellets; sawdust; drying; pellet production; recirculation; quality; efficency; environment; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Abstract : Bioenergy is one of many contributors to reducing the use of fossil fuels in order to mitigate climate change by decreasing CO2-emissions, and the potential for biofuels are large. The wood fuel pellets are a refined biofuel made of sawdust, which is dried and compressed to achieve improved fuel and transportation properties. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development towards an efficient and sustainable biofuel drying

    Author : Peter Bengtsson; Thomas Thörnqvist; Tom Morén; Växjö universitet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; biomass; bioenergy; drying; bed drying; drying zone; modeling; VOC; terpenes; wood fuels; wood chips; sawdust; Norway spruce; Scots pine;

    Abstract : The usage of biofuel as well as wood fuel has increased in Sweden and all of Europe during recent decades, and there are several reasons to believe that this increase will continue. An important reason for this increase is that the environmental and climate problems caused by fossil fuels are becoming even more evident. READ MORE

  4. 4. Acid-catalyzed Liquefaction of Industrial Side-streams for Producing Wood Adhesives and Particleboard

    Author : Wen Jiang; Stergios Adamopoulos; Sheikh Ali Ahmed; Sergej Medved; Carsten Mai; Johannes Konnerth; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Bark; Catalysts; Industrial side-streams; Liquefaction; Oat husks; Optimization; Particleboards; Polyurethane; Polyhydric alcohols; Wood adhesives; Wood sawdust; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Abstract : Big quantities of residues and side-streams are generated annually from forest-based and agricultural industries all around the world and present a relatively unexplored renewable resource. Due to the absence of a regularly updated and systematic database of supply, industrial residues and side-streams usually end up in landfill disposal, are used for energy generation, or remain at the production sites.
