Forest Concepts Receives $1.8 million from DOE to Improve Design of Biomass Systems

Biomass materials have a wide range of moisture contents that are subjected to varying temperature, pressures, and forces which traditional metrics provide little-to-no value for the engineering design of hoppers, feeders and mixers. Many of the reported failures at advanced biofuel and bioproducts production facilities are due in part to feedstock handling related problems resulting from a lack of useful and accurate engineering data. Forest Concepts, led by Dr. Jim Dooley, CTO, in collaboration with Penn State University’s Dr. Virendra Puri, has an overall project goal to contribute to the design and operation of reliable, cost effective, continuous feeding of biomass feedstocks into various reactors typical of integrated biorefineries. For the past 30 plus years, Dr. Puri has greatly advanced the modeling of compression, flowability, and storage of particulate materials...
