Allocated to research program
For industrial processes of material and energetic use, wood is frequently stored as bulk material in the form of wood chips. Microbiological-chemical degradation processes result in storage losses of up to 25%. These losses can only be reduced if a basic understanding of the interaction of temperature, water content, microbiology and process chemistry is available in the stockpile. The aim of the project is to work together with experienced researchers from the field of wood chemistry and wood gasification to develop important basic knowledge in laboratory and practical experiments. Moreover, the influence of alcalic additives on the combustion and gasification of the fuel is investigated. The project is based on Austrian-German research cooperation.
