Vakbeschrijving

The course will start with an introduction on the global energy resources and the role of biomass, with aspects of biomass as a renewable energy source and global warming.
Biomass characterization, analysis and the basic principles of biomass treatment steps like: drying storage, torrefaction, pyrolysis, gasification combustion; energy conversion will be discussed.
Modeling of biomass conversion on particle and reactor scale will be examined. Chemical, thermo dynamical, heat and mass transfer aspects will be handled.
The thermo chemical processes of biomass conversion like combustion, gasification and pyrolysis will be discussed in more detail. The different types of equipment applied in these processes will be treated.
Attention will be given to the co-production of valuable products (e.q. bio-chemicals) and fuels from biomass, so-called: biorefinery.
Emissions of solid and gaseous components and the measures to prevent these emissions will be part of the course.
