New small scale innovative energy biomass combustor

Objective

Innovative combustion system: Compared to conventional grate-fired boilers, cost reduction min. 33%, from 175-235 EUR/kWth to 115 EUR/kWth (compact construction of the boiler, no refractory material); Low stack loss, boiler efficiency 3 % points higher; Equalised temperatures within furnace (high degree of turbulence); very compact combustion chamber; More complete combustion, even in the case of inhomogenities.

Scale up: Cost reduction by min. 33%, specific investment cost below 1500 EUR/kWel (simplification of every step; replication); net electric efficiency + 3% points; Thermal peak load coverage without increasing of rated power, electric power peak load coverage; Reduction of emissions (operation near the optimum). Demand side mgmt.: Complete new district heating system: less losses in the heating grid, smaller boiler for a maximum of full load operating hours. All: Shorter pay-back period (lower initial costs, higher efficiency and expected lower operational costs.
