Industrial gasification of biomass often face fouling caused by the formation of deposits. Fouling can be particularly extensive when alternative biomass is gasified, with high concentrations of calcium, phosphorus, chlorine, sulphur and potassium. The good example of such awkward biomass is poultry feathers, which is successfully gasified in the robust 3.5 MWth fixed-bed updraft gasification plant in Olsztyn, Poland. The bottom ashes and fireside deposits, which are formed along the plant, were collected and analyzed by means of X-ray Fluorescence and X-ray Diffraction. The analysis revealed that bottom ash and deposits in gasifier consist more than 67 % of hydroxyapatite [Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2], the substitute of natural bones. In fact, different amount of hydroxyapatite is recognised in deposits collected from different apparatuses. © 2016 ETA-Florence Renewable Energies.

We introduce a class of discrete-continuous percolation models and an efficient Monte Carlo algorithm for computing their properties. The class is general enough to include well-known discrete and continuous models as special cases. We focus on a particular example of such a model, a nanotube model of disintegration of activated carbon. We calculate its exact critical threshold in two dimensions and obtain a Monte Carlo estimate in three dimensions. Furthermore, we use this example to analyze and characterize the efficiency of our algorithm, by computing critical exponents and properties, finding that it compares favorably to well-known algorithms for simpler systems.

This paper discusses the problem of fireside deposition observed during industrial gasification of feathers in a 3.5 MWth updraft fixed-bed plant equipped with steam boiler. The research included calculating mass balance of the system and performing an analysis of samples of bottom ash and fireside deposits collected from the plant, including XRF, XRD and melting characteristics. Analysis revealed that the bottom ashes and the fireside deposits, collected from the gasification and combustion chambers, consisted of hydroxyapatite with addition of silica and aluminium compounds, while the deposits collected from the boiler and the economiser were formed out of alkali and alkali earth metal sulphates, present in a form of eutectic systems such as 50CaSO4-30K2SO4-20Na2SO4 and 30K2SO4-40Na2SO4-30ZnSO4. The method of minimising fireside deposition by means of additives was discussed and alternative types of boilers suitable for feather gasification systems were proposed as a result of the study. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

We present a new model of the Lorentz gas kinetic equation for a system where the integral collision operator has a spectrum consisting of a continuous and discrete part. The spectral gap between the two kinds of the spectrum is an adjustable parameter of the model. This allows for the analysis of the existence and property of the hydrodynamical eigenstates and the meaning of the Grad's method of moments for the transition between hard and soft interactions. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

Waste Management | Year: 2012

The poultry waste produced by industrial slaughterhouses typically contains not only feathers, but also a mixture of animal entrails, nails, blood, beaks and whole carcasses. Economical utilisation of this mixture, varying strongly in composition and moisture content, is, in general, difficult. We demonstrate that this awkward material can be successfully used for gasification in a simple, fixed-bed gasifier. The method of gasification, which we developed, enables control of the gasification process and ensures its stability in the operational regime of a working poultry processing plant. The installation, which has been working in Poland for 2. years, utilises 2. tons of feathers per hour and produces syngas of stable composition and fairly high quality. The syngas is burnt in the combustion chamber adjacent to the gasifier. Heat is recuperated in a boiler producing 3.5. tons per hour of technological steam continuously used for the operation of the slaughterhouse. The whole process complies with the stringent emission standards. In the paper we present the end-use device for feather utilisation and describe the underlying gasification and syngas combustion processes. Key elements of the whole installation are briefly discussed. The environmental impacts of the installation are summarized. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
