Help to characterize non-conventional fuels

In energy plants, fuel flexibility is desirable but risky. Non conventional fuels can induce operational problems (ex. fouling, corrosion, emissions) difficult to predict. Pilot testing is useful but time consuming. BIOFACT rapidly detects operational risks for biomass and waste fuels. A unique tool for engineers and buyers to screen fuels.

 

 


 

 

How it works

  1. Send the fuel analyses (include ash composition) or submit the fuel data below. Also, we can use our fuels Database.
  2. Get the BIOFACT Report by email in 24h or online
    • Identify the combustion operational risks, for the specific fuel, with the module C (combustion) and the most suitable technologies to process it, with the module T (technology).
    • Find the optimal mix of fuels/additives/bed material to minimize ash related issues with the module O (optimization).
