BIOMASS FUELS AND ENERGY VALUE ANALYSIS


Nowadays, while energy consumption is increasing, interest in sustainable energy sources is increasing due to environmental concerns and limited resources of fossil fuels. This ability stands out as an important alternative energy source obtained from biological sources such as biomass fuels, plant and animal attacks. Various types of biomass fuel are produced from biomass production. Some of these can be exemplified as follows;

• Biomass Wood Fuels (tree bark etc.)

• Plant Based Biomass Fuels (biodiesel etc.)

• Waste Biomass Fuels (tea waste etc.)

• Animal Biomass Fuels (chicken manure etc.)


Since the sulfur content of biomass fuels is very low, they do not have properties that increase sulfur emissions. In this way, it is used as a safe and sustainable energy source. The use of biomass fuels not only reduces the damage caused, but also prevents their economically inefficient use. Biomass fuels obtained from organic materials offer an alternative to fossil fuels. Thus, while fossil fuel consumption is reduced, organic waste is helped to be recycled.


To evaluate biomass fuels, it is necessary to determine the value of energy. The energy value of a biomass fuel is a critical parameter for detection of the fuel. The energy value of biomass fuels is lower when compared to fossil fuels (such as coal and oil). This is because it contains a high amount of water. Some of the energy released during combustion is used for evaporating the water it contains. For this reason, it must be dried and removed from moisture before use.

The energy value of biomass fuels is determined in detail by the calorimeter device. The operation of the calorimeter device and its production contribution can be evaluated from different perspectives. As a result of the analyzes made with the calorimeter device, energy production and fuel sections for biomass are evaluated and energy production is optimized. In this way, the unit price of the fuel is determined by taking its energy value into consideration.


In businesses with heavy fuel consumption, the energy value of the fuel supplied should be checked regularly. It is ensured that the declared energy value of the fuel is compatible with the amount of energy obtained as a result of the analyzes carried out in the enterprise. The use of a calorimeter device is very important in order to prevent possible formations. In this way, the unit price of fuel can be determined accurately. The calorimeter device contributes to the determination of fuel operation, boiler design and properties. Boiler design is not carried out by recording the upper and lower calorific values of the fuel. Energy efficiency is calculated by comparing the total amount of heat (fuel energy) given to the boiler and the total energy obtained from the boiler. The use of calorimeter devices in businesses ensures the life of recoverable energy units. The unburnt values remaining in the boiler can be determined as recoverable by performing energy value analysis. Alternative fuel sources are offered by mixing the remaining options with new fuels in certain proportions. In this way, fuel costs can be reduced significantly.


The use of sustainable and environmentally friendly biofuels as an alternative to fossil fuels should be supported. Energy requirement plan should be obtained from various biomass materials and its efficiency should be increased with the use of calorimeter device.


Different types of sample analyzes are performed with the Calorimeter IC 210 Instrument that we manufacture as Debye Technic Arge Mühendislik Ltd. Şti. In addition to coal analyses, food analyses and energy material analyses, there are also calorific value analyzes for biomass fuels such as hazelnut shells, tea tree and wood. You can contact our support team to get detailed information about the Calorimeter IC210 and all the samples you want to be analyzed.
