This work proposes a transient heat transfer model to predict the thermal behaviour of wood in a heated bed of sand fluidized with nitrogen. The 2-D model in cylindrical coordinates considers wood anisotropy, variable fuel properties, fuel particle shrinkage, and heat generation due to drying and...
The catalytic gasification of char from co-pyrolysis of coal and wheat straw was studied. Alkali metal salts, especially potassium salts, are considered as effective catalysts for carbon gasification by steam and CO 2 , while too expensive for industry application. The herbaceous type of biomass,...
