Paper Title:
Design and Implementation of an Efficient Biomass Drier System for a Wood Gasification Based Power Plant
  Abstract

The use of woody biomass gasification based power plants to generate electricity is on the rise with the fast depletion of fossil fuels and ever increasing energy demands. An important sub-system of such a plant is the drier which is used to reduce the moisture content of biomass to an optimum level for trouble free and optimum performance of the gasification system. This work concerns with the design, development and implementation of a drier system which utilizes waste heat available from the power plant to dry biomass. The drier designed is simple yet effective in capturing the waste heat from the engine exhaust as well as the radiator hot air. The drier is also easy to implement in rural areas.
