  • ANALISI SPERIMENTALE DI UN IMPIANTO DI PIROLISI PER BIOMASSE AGRICOLE E CARATTERIZZAZIONE DEI PRODOTTI DI CONVERSIONE (IMPIANTO DI PIROLISI DELLA ITALENERGIE DI SULMONA IN ABRUZZO ITALIA)

Abstract

The aim of the research was to evaluate the efficiency of a biomass pyrolysis plant in collaboration with Italenergie (Sulmona). The products' combustion specifications were characterized. The pyrolysis plant has been designed for a capacity of 1 ton/h dry biomass. The different parts of the installation are: - the unity of biomass preparation (grinding, drying) - the pyrolysis unit (fluidized bed reactor) - the product separation unit (cyclon for carbon-gas separation, washing tower and filters for the condensible fraction recuperation). Non-condensable gases are used for biomass drying. Results: The principal parameters of the flow sheet were measured on the experimental plant. This includes the analysis of chemical biomass composition and bio-oil composition, material flow, gas flow, energy flow. Owing to the characteristics of the biomass, the global thermal efficiency of the plant is about 54-60 %.
