Abstract

This bulletin details research and development work by the Process Development and Storage Engineering Department of the Natural Resources Institute on combustion of particulate forestry and agricultural wastes in a cyclonic suspension burner with a process heat output of 250-500 MJ/h. An application for burning wood residues was identified and this work led to the successful development of a timber drying system. This sytem has now been tested overseas and is available commercially.
