Emission of Hydrogen During Combustion of Plant Biomass Pellets on the Grate of a Low Power Boiler
MetadataShow full item record
Analysis of the wheat, rye, triticale, buckwheat straw and meadow hay pellets combustion process was carried out for hydrogen emissions. Tests were performed in grate upper combustion boiler. The air was supplied through a ventilator beneath the grate at the rate of 1.5 m·s-1. Differences in obtained hydrogen amounts in exhausted gas were observed: from 216 to 266 ppm, on average. This substance presence was usually characterized by negative correlation with exhaust gas temperature, while positive with the air excess. This aspect emissions hydrogen is very important for achieving the goals of sustainable agriculture that meet current and future human needs. It would be advisable to enhance tests using other forms of combusted bio-fuels, as well as to carry out the analyses of other components of exhausted gas generated during combustion.
