Check-in: moisture content – radiowave arrival measurement on roundwood and chip trucks

The moisture content of wood chips and fuel- and pulpwood is important for both logistics and industrial processes. Today’s methods for measuring the moisture content of wood chips are slow, and the methods for roundwood…

Wood powder firing in directly heated grain dryers for increased resource efficiency and lower CO2-emissions

Large amounts of grain are dried each year, corresponding to about 150 000 tons of water in Sweden. In industrial scale, drying is done with combustion heat in dryers that supply heat directly by contact…

Bioflex – biobased energy carriers and their contribution to a flexible energy system

Bioflex aims at increasing the flexibility, redundancy, and robustness of the energy system by integrating biobased energy carriers (biohydrogen/biogas) with electrolytic hydrogen. By combining 2 energy carriers, the project intends to investigate possible synergy effects…

Biochar stability validation – reaching a new level of understanding and transparency

Biochar produced from biomass has large potential to provide negative greenhouse gas emissions as a stable carbon sink in soil. A major hurdle for biochar market establishment is the limited knowledge about the stability of…
