Fluidized bed (FB) conversion of biomass is challenged by the fact that the biomass feedstock differs in physical properties (size, density, shape) which yield strongly different fuel mixing patterns. Fuel mixing has a strong impact on the process performance and represents a key knowledge gap limiting scale-up and optimization of large-scale biomass conversion. This project will both improve fuel flexibility and enhance the load range for efficient operation of large-scale biomass conversion (combustion and gasification). Special focus is set on including partial load operation. This project aims at developing a method to fluid-dynamically characterize biomass feedstocks and at using recently developed state-of-the-art experimental methods to diagnose the mixing of a biomass feedstock.
