Ratio of Heating Value to Carbon Content as Calculation Parameter for Biomass Carbon Resource
Yukihiko MATSUMURA, Hiromi YAMAMOTO
Considering the importance of biomass as a carbon resource, process design should also be examined based on carbon flow. The quotient of the heating value divided by the carbon content of the material is proposed as a new parameter for process design based on carbon flow. Representative processes are described using this parameter, and the general process design procedure using this parameter is shown. The relationship of this parameter with Dulong’s equation and that with carbon-related energy are also discussed.
