Development of Torrefaction for North Carolina Woody Biomass

Organization:
NC State Natural Resources Foundation, Inc.
Amount:
$172,533.00
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:
Wake
Description:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to develop a low cost, mobile torrefaction system that uses heat to reduce the moisture content in wood chips resulting in a more energy dense, transportable fuel that can be used in many applications, including, potentially, co-firing with coal in power plants. The process has the added benefit of providing an economically valuable use for cull trees and logging residue.
