Kinetic characterization of the residues from the pruning of apple trees for their use as energy vectors
The residues from the pruning of apple trees were evaluated for their use as feedstock in thermochemical processes with energy recovery purposes. With the aim to better understand their thermal and thermooxidative behavior, ...
Building Simulation Applications BSA 2015: 2nd IBPSA-Italy conference Bozen-Bolzano, 4th – 6th February 2015
(Bozen-Bolzano University Press, 2015)
Building Simulation applications (BSA) 2015 was the second IBPSA-Italy conference on building performance simulation to take place at the Free University of Bolzano, from February 4th to 6th 2015. The main topics dealt ...
Valorization pathways for char from small scale gasification systems in South-Tyrol: The “NEXT GENERATION” project
(ETA Florence, 2017)
Small-scale-woody-biomass gasification plants installation have seen a rapid growth in the last years in South Tyrol. More than 40 plants have been installed, producing about 42 GWhel and 84 GWhth, most of them exploited ...
Analysis of biomass chars thermal decomposition: Experimental tests and modelling in N2 and CO2 atmosphere
(ETA Florence, 2017)
Char is a by-product of biomass gasification; nonetheless, it can be valorized in several ways, for wastewater treatment, for instance, or as bio-fertilizer. Char has also been observed to have a high potential for catalytic ...
Modeling Analysis of Biomass Gasification MCHP Systems for Residential Applications
The aim of this work is the energy efficiency assessment of micro cogeneration systems (MCHP) based on biomass gasification for residential application, using a multistage modeling approach. Particular attention has been ...
Characterisation of the char obtained from biomass gasification in a spouted bed reactor
There is a need to find ways of employing the solid residue of biomass gasification, char, to enhance the economic and environmental advantages of the process. The possible ways depend on the properties of char, which in ...

(Bozen-Bolzano University Press, 2013)
Building Simulation applications 2013 was the first IBPSA Italy regional conference on building performance simulation. The two-day event focused on three main subjects: simulation of building performance, actual perspectives ...
Common reeds (Phragmites australis) as sustainable energy source: experimental and modelling analysis of torrefaction and pyrolysis processes
The aim of this study is to apply advanced analytical techniques and kinetic modelling to common reeds (Phragmites australis) to characterize its pyrolysis and torrefaction as possible environmental friendly and sustainable ...
Modelling the emissions of a dual fuel engine coupled with a biomass gasifier – Supplementing the Wiebe model
