Combustion of Solid Waste from Wood-Based Ethanol Production

  title={Combustion of Solid Waste from Wood-Based Ethanol Production},
  author={L. Gunnar Eriksson},
The solid residue from wood-based ethanol production has a low ash content and high heating value, making it interesting for combustion applications, e.g. small-scale appliances and gas turbines. Combustion and gasification properties have been studied using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential thermal analysis (DTA). Char combustion rate data obtained could be used in combustion simulations. TGA and DTA data are useful for comparison with other fuels where data are available for… CONTINUE READING
