ABSTRACT

In modified Tube reactor, where the average concentration of solids amounts to 0.1- 0.2 t/m3, i.e. the conditions for residence time are long enough for the thermal combustion of biomass waste and coal and extensive gas mixing with 60-70% excess air so enhancing biomass combustion and heat transfers to the boilers. It is necessary to create conditions of internal circulation without the transported coal and waste in modified Tube and boiler, 90-95% combustion yield were observed at the end of combustion. Total heat values of biowastes were of approximately 17.8 kJ/ kg for corn stalk and 16.2 kJ/ kg for forest wood waste for modified Tube combustion by microwave.

There are various objectives to make the necessary arrangements to increase the use of biomass and solar energy as the other device. Considering the known biomass area of the potential high forest fields in northern Anatolia and located in central and eastern Anatolia it is seen as having low to medium heat resources. As we have seen in our country there is a significant potential for biomass resources will be invested. The low heat waste will be great source for waste heat and in comparison the electricity production may reach on 60-70 % thermal performances by microwave co-combustion.
