Drying behaviour observations for wood chips of grade EN14961
Kulcsszavak:drying, wood chips, moisture content
Solid biofuels such as woodchips have always been a significant source of fuel in the field of renewable energy. However, the drying of wood chips has been a challenge in preparing biofuels and other applications. The moisture content of below 25% in the wood chips of grade EN 14961 is considered the premium wood chip material. Solar drying emerged as a leading solution for the drying of wood chips. The paper investigates the comparison of moisture removal rate using a natural convective solar dryer compared to open sun drying developed at Miskolc, Hungary (48°06'15.0"N 20°47'30.0"E).
