In this paper, the possible use of heat surplus from a biomass-fired cogeneration unit, for treating a share of the biomass and produce a new and more compact fuel, like pellets, is discussed. Such a fuel could be easily stored and then distributed, for a more widespread and diffused utilization close to the consumers, for heating purposes. This shape of energy storage makes time and geographical shift of heat utilization possible. A technical-economical comparison is carried out and discussed, between the above mentioned system and a district heating, supplied by a traditional biomass boiler or a conventional chip-fired cogeneration plant without pellets production.

Abstract

In this paper, the possible use of heat surplus from a biomass-fired cogeneration unit, for treating a share of the biomass and produce a new and more compact fuel, like pellets, is discussed. Such a fuel could be easily stored and then distributed, for a more widespread and diffused utilization close to the consumers, for heating purposes. This shape of energy storage makes time and geographical shift of heat utilization possible. A technical-economical comparison is carried out and discussed, between the above mentioned system and a district heating, supplied by a traditional biomass boiler or a conventional chip-fired cogeneration plant without pellets production.
