Thermal pretreatment of wood (Lauan) block by torrefaction and its influence on the properties of the biomass.

The presence of calcium along the edges of the torrefied sawdust particle suggests that calcium might have reacted with the carbon surface or the volatiles given off during the higher temperature torrefaction. Some mineral phases (high in Ca and Si/Al/O complex) were found in the pores of the torrefied sawdust, suggesting both incorporation and then reaction with the carbon surface.
During torrefaction, woodchips go through a machine - almost like an industrial-sized oven - to remove the moisture and toast the biomass.
Another interesting option, especially for herbaceous biomass (currently rarely considered for co-firing) might be a pre-treatment process combining torrefaction and pelletization to allow co-utilization of high ratios of low-quality biomass with coal in existing coal systems without major modifications.
Preprocessing technologies being advanced include pelletization, torrefaction, solvent extraction, hydrolysis, etc.
Pretreatment might include chipping, pelletization, torrefaction (a drying process) and pyrolysis.
