Periodic Reporting for period 1 - BioValue (Quality determination of solid biofuels in real time)
Reporting period: 2015-03-01 to 2016-02-29
Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project
The purpose of this project is to enable “Quality determination of biofuels in real time” and Mantex has proposed the idea to develop a “Novel biomass scanner for measurement of inhomogeneous biomass”.
Work performed from the beginning of the project to the end of the period covered by the report and main results achieved so far
Mantex has developed a new modularized architecture for multisensor biomass scanners and has completed detail design of several generic modules. The new modules has enabled a fast design and build of a new multisensor biofuel sample analyzer that has been used in comprenhensive research activities. At current our research efforts show positive results in measuring moisture content, ash content and energy value for logging residues, roundwood chips and sawdust. In parallel a conceptual design for a new online biofuel scanner called Flow Scanner X2 has been performed and is now ready to be evaluated.
Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)
New measurement parameters that could support the final objective of this project, to classify various types of biofuel, has been identified and will be further examined during the next phase of the project.
