Biomass Combustion Research

Biomass Combustion Research

Energy Research

The use of alternative combustion fuels that provide a renewable source of energy is a major area of research and investment. Sources of biomass fuels include virgin wood, energy crops, agricultural residues, food waste and industrial waste. Controlling the combustion process of any new fuel and keeping track of the biomass fuel emissions of combustion by-products is important to users of these new fuels.

Protea has supplied FTIR gas analysers to Universities who are at the forefront of research into new fuels. FTIR biomass gas analysis allows for identification and measurement of common inorganic combustion products (CO, CO2, NOx, SOx) as well as organic species that could be the result of incomplete combustion.
