The objective of this task is to demonstrate the improvements of biomass densification systems on 2 feed stocks. Torrefaction and subsequent briquetting will be done with a 50-100 kg/hr semi-industrial pilot demonstration plant to produce 2 x 1 ton of torrefied briquettes for storage testing at the demonstration sites.
Work planned in this task includes:
- Torrefaction of 2 feedstock at ECN in the Netherlands
- Transport of torrefied feedstock to Denmark for briquetting demonstrations
- Briquetting of torrefied feedstock at CFN in Denmark
- Transport of torrefied feedstock to Spain for testing storage properties.
- A successful demonstration of an increased quality Bioenergy carrier for a better feedstock storage and transport by means of torrefaction and briquetting at commercial pilot scale.
