Can we valorize this feedstock (at which price, with which technology)?
BIOFACT is an online fuel specialist tool to help engineers and business developers for the biomass fuels screening.
Today many solid fuels, such as agricultural residues, non-food crops and bio-wastes, are available, cheap, and could be converted into useful energy in sustainable ways. Nevertheless the combustion of those fuels can cause technical and operational problems and therefore is an open question.
Such problems are often related to the inorganic matter present in the fuel. This matter converts in ash, which can form, at high temperatures, slag and agglomerates, deposit on heat exchangers at lower temperatures and cause corrosion in the plant.
BIOFACT provides a quick and precise evaluation on operational risks, for example, ash and emissions risks, for the specific solid fuel. It also suggests the most suitable technologies to process it.
BIOFACT is a boost for the use of solid renewable fuels in the modern energy system!
