Mechanical grater system for alternative biomass fuels with high water and ash content integrated into a combustion chamber of a microcogeneration ORC unit

Project ID: TK02020137
Funding provider: Technology Agency of the Czech Republic
Investigator at UCEEB:  Ing. Zbyněk Zelený
Project duration: 1. 8. 2019 – 31. 7. 2022
Partners: G – Team Progres, spol. s r.o.

Find a complex solution of a combustion chamber for combusting solid biomass fuels with high content of ash and water in a microcogeneration ORC unit. Design a mechanical grater system including its cooling system. Optimize air supply into the combustion chamber and eventually design a flue gas recirculation system. Enable combusting low quality biomass fuels, often considered waste, in the combustion chamber. Contribute to the “Ekodesign” designation for microcogeneration ORC unit Wave 120kW. Publish an academic paper about the results of our project and present it at the international conference..
