One of the main barriers for the successful utilization of new biomass feedstocks in commercial pellet boilers is the lack of knowledge about the combustion behavior of such fuels, particularly in terms of ash slagging, which can potentially damage the boiler and limit combustion efficiency. The VI Framework European project Domoheat studied the combustion of 15 Mediterranean woody and herbaceous biomass fuels in commercial 60 kW domestic pellet boilers. The performance of several methods for… CONTINUE READING
