Biomass is a difficult material to work with. It’s nuanced. Its characteristics change with moisture levels, temperature, particle shapes, sizes, whether it’s woody or herbaceous, species, etc. So, getting it to flow reliably through a given system can prove challenging, even if it’s just a tiny addition to an existing material stream, such as coal. To handle biomass well, you must understand its characteristics and the best practices for addressing them.
Helping you understand biomass is what this eBook aims to accomplish. In Part I, we explain the characteristics of biomass that affect its flow and the equipment handling it. In Part II, we delve into some practical matters of handling biomass, such as particle segregation, chute design, and material conveyance.
