Sensors for monitoring particle emissions from biomass combustion

tracking particle emissions

The Spanish Association of Energy Valorization of Biomass (Avebiom) will promote the implementation of digital emission control systems in small and medium power biomass combustion plants in urban environments thanks to the project Digital Biomass, whose main objective is "to carry out an analysis of the possibilities, difficulties and challenges of implementing innovative particle emission monitoring systems through a panel of chemical and environmental sensors in biomass combustion plants from 100 kilowatts to 5 megawatts".

Avebiom considers "essential to advance in the measurement, control and improvement of particle emissions by biomass thermal installations". With Digital Biomass it seeks "the design and implementation of digital emission monitoring systems in small and medium power biomass combustion facilities in urban environments". Javier Díaz, president of Avebiom, assumes that “one of the challenges of the sustainable commercial development of biomass for thermal use is that of its use as a heating fuel in large cities, where there may be limitations in the emission levels of combustion equipment related to high levels of air pollution ”. Digital BiomassIt will contribute to the improvement of the manufacturing processes of biomass boilers and solid biofuels used as fuels.
