We can consider biomass the material from plants or animals that is not used for food or feed; it can be wood chips from wood works, waste from farming (like wheat stalks) or horticulture (yard waste), food processing (like corn cobs), animal farming (manure).

Our biomass range is wide (as the samples seen below) and can not be limited to those we are showing: biomass is never the same. Its composition can change even if the origin is similar. 

A biomass can be characterized with some analysis:

  • Immediate analysis: water content, volatile matter, fixed carbon, ash 
  • Elemental analysis: carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, sulfur, chlorine, oxygen and others.
  • Ash composition analysis: Al2O3, CaO, MgO, K2O, SiO2, TiO2, Cl, Na2O, SO3, etc.

The more fuel information we have, the better the design, the performance and the operation of the boiler will be.
