Abstract:

This project addresses the problem of increasing biomass feed to electricity-generating power furnaces with the goal of reducing GHGs. Currently wood pellets are burned, but the ash content and lower energy density limit their use. Lignin pellets have approximately the same energy content as coal, about 12,000 Btu/lb, which is about twice the energy of low-moisture wood pellets. The lignin pellets could be blended directly with the coal feed with the only additional capital being the separate storage and feeding equipment for the pellets.
