The poster investigates the mechanical properties (Particle and bulk densities, compressive strength, bending strength, and the angle of repose) of a variety of torrefied and non-torrefied biomass pellets and shows the relationship between different properties. Moreover, a novel and quick method to determine the particle size distribution of...

The large-scale storage of biomass pellets is challenging due to health issues, material loss, and the risk of fire and explosions. The thermal conductivity is a material property which plays a key role in determining the self-heating properties of biomass. Meanwhile, understanding the thermal conductivity and the affecting factors help to...

The breakage behaviour of biomass pellets with a diameter of 6 mm under uniaxial compression test was studied experimentally and numerically using the discrete element method (DEM). Two types of the available bonding contact models in EDEM software were used to compare the macroscopic properties including the maximum stress at failure, strain at...

Densification has been carried out for many years, mostly in biomass processing, animal feed production, and pharmaceutical industries. During the years, researchers and engineers attempted to improve the product quality and minimize the production costs. The most important quality parameters of solid bio-materials are the compressive...
