Original Abstract

This article compares the combustion of the different biomass types in a multi-stage combustor. The two biomass specimen are wood chips and cocoa shells. For the testing purposes, the wood chips represents an easily accessible and combustible biomass type with low emissions and the cocoa shells are an unusual specimen that needs to be examined closely. The comparison contains the combustion process, emissions and the operational problems. The monitored emissions are carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and particulates, all monitored at the highest achieved efficiency. For the operational problems, the most notable one is the possibility of slugging of the combustion device while combusting the cocoa shells. Co-combustion of the two fuels is not included.
