The Effect of Biomass Physical Properties on Top-Lit Updraft Gasification of Woodchips
The performance of a top-lit updraft gasifier affected by biomass (pine wood) particle size, moisture content and compactness was studied in terms of the biochar yield, biomass burning rate, syngas composition and tar ...
Introduction to the Application of Phase Change Materials under Tropical Climate of Panama
(2019 7th International Engineering, Sciences and Technology Conference (IESTEC), 2016-10-09)
Phase change materials (PCM) are materials with the ability to store a large amount of energy (latent heat) during their change from solid to a liquid phase. This takes place at a certain melting temperature. Amid the ...
Characterization of Biochar from Rice Hulls and Wood Chips Produced in a Top-Lit Updraft Biomass Gasifier
The objective of this study was to characterize biochar produced from rice hulls and wood chips in a top-lit updraft gasifier. Biochar from four airflows (8, 12, 16, or 20 L min-1) and two insulation conditions (not insulated ...
