72703-There is a national interest in the efficient, economical and enhanced utilization of biomass as an energy resource. Consequently, there is a need for the development of a feedstock-flexible, modular, biomass drying system that can cater to the local market drivers in an efficient, safe and environmentally responsible manner. This project will develop a pulsed combustion drying system for biomass. The technical and engineering feasibility was established in Phase I through successful experimental and analytical studies. The innovative pulse combustion drying system was shown to be potentially superior to conventional drying systems in efficiency, environmental performance, and cost. Phase II will develop and field test a prototype biomass drying system, generate process characterization data for scale-up and commercialization, and prepare for launching the technology in a Phase III demonstration. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits as described by awardee: Deployment of the novel, cost-effective, environmentally benign, and efficient biomass drying system should enhance biomass utilization, promote energy savings, and reduce pollutant emissions.

A snow or material pushing device for plowing a surface including a moldboard with a scraper blade, and having side plates attached at either end. The side plates further include skid or wear shoes pivotally or rotationally affixed to the side plates to remain in full contact with the surface, thereby reducing the need to adjust and replace the scraper blade and wear shoes.

The inventive technology, in embodiments, may include a controller configured to coordinate operation of valves and remotely controllable regulators that are fluidically communicative therewith, allowing the control of positioners of positioner zones that are in fluidically communicative with such remotely controllable regulators. Preferred embodiments may find application as, e.g., a pneumatic system to control positioners, whether such positioner find use in bottling applications or elsewhere. Additional aspects of the inventive technology may relate to methods for pressurized fluid positioner control.
