Publication on torrified biomass combustion at the National Energy Symposium 2019

A conference publication titled ‘Technical and Environmental Feasibility of Co-firing Torrefied Biomass in a Coal-fired Power Plant, authored by Mses. Udya Devaraja,  Sachini Supunsala, and Dr. Duleeka Gunarathne of the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering of University of Moratuwa was presented at the Moratuwa Engineering Research Conference (MERCon 2020) on the 28th July 2020. This study was focused on the evaluation of co-firing possibilities of both raw and torrefied rubber wood chips with the aid of Aspen Plus process simulation software and experimental studies conducted by torrefieing rubber wood chips at a temperature of 300  for 60 minutes.
