  • TITLE: Combustion Characteristics of Tree Woods

    AUTHORS: Suryakant Chakradhari, Khageshwar Singh Patel

    KEYWORDS: Tree, Heat Value, Moisture, Volatile Matter, Particulate Matter, Ash Residue

    JOURNAL NAME: Journal of Sustainable Bioenergy Systems, Vol.6 No.2, May 12, 2016

    ABSTRACT: Biomass is a renewable energy source because sun energy is stored in the form of biomass which regrows over a relatively short period as compared to fossil fuel. The biomass on burning released energy with emission of carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds, particulate matters and ash residue. The combustion characteristics of biomass depends on several factors of plants i.e. bulk density, moisture, organic matter and metal content. In this work, the combustion characteristics i.e. heat value, moisture, volatile matter and ash content as well as emission fluxes of particulate matters (PM10) of trees grown in central India are described. The calorific value (CV) of 53 trees was ranged from 5190 - 8130 kcal/kg with mean value (p = 0.05) of 6380 ± 170 kcal/kg. Bahera tree showed the highest CV, 8130 kcal/kg, and hence, it was chosen for the detailed studies.
