of woody biomass," ENERGY & FUELS, vol.
Since Terra Preta, as an aggregated mixture of organic and inorganic phases, is effective in promoting soil fertility, a program has been initiated at the University of New South Wales, in collaboration with Comell University, Industry & Investment NSW, and Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia, to develop synthetic high organo-mineral micro-aggregates (termed synthetic Terra Preta, STP) using a process of 'biomass torrefaction
While the process of torrefaction
is nothing new, NC State's particular torrefier machine, called the Autothermic Transportable Torrefaction
Machine (ATTM), is field portable and self-heated.
(4) Combining torrefaction
and pelletization, with leaching biomass, and combining biomass pyrolysis with char washing are interesting options for pre-treatment processes, especially for herbaceous biomass (which currently is not often considered for co-firing).
Assessing the integration of torrefaction
into wood pellet production.

Specific topics include northern Tibet grassland vegetation index factor screening and suitability partition, residence time distribution and disinfectant mixing in private water tanks, the effect of temperature on the torrefaction
of food waste using a heat carrier, the performance of a batch rotating fixed bed of scrap bearing iron spheres in hexavalent chromium reduction, and effects of low temperature stress and release on the fluorescence indexes of greening seedlings of three tree species.
Il s'agit d'une unite de production avicole d'une capacite de 850 plaques/jour extensible, d'une laiterie d'une capacite theorique de 7.000 litres/jour et d'une unite de torrefaction
Apart from these, new evolving technologies that densify woody biomass, such as torrefaction
, briquetting and densification, can significantly increase the energy value of the raw materials.
The trick is to build village-sized torrefaction
plants in farming communities.
