Preparation and Characterization of Briquette Fuel from Biomass-Fired Fly Ash
In many of the current biomass-fired power plants, the fly ash usually contains abundant combustible char, due to the in-sufficient burning. In this study, a new idea was proposed to prepare briquette fuel using the fly ash. Experiments were conducted to produce six briquette fuels from the fly ash added with the composite binder and using a lab-scale briquetting machine. The mechanical strength of the six briquette fuels and their burning-out residues was measured, to reveal the effects of the composite binder on preparation and characteristics of the briquette fuel.
