Article
Full-text available
The release law of alkali and alkaline earth metals (AAEMs) during coal pyrolysis is crucial for controlling scaling, corrosion and slagging in the utilization of high AAEMs coal. To approximate entrained-flow bed gasification process, a free-falling reactor was used for coal pyrolysis to study the release characteristics of AAEMs in nascent char....
Article
Residues from banana and coconut timber production offer potential advantages if used as solid fuel. This study investigated the gasification behavior of co‐pelletized, hydrothermally treated banana leaves (HBL) and coconut sawdust (HCS) at varied blend ratios. Pellet quality tests revealed that the individual and co‐pelletized HBL:HCS samples have...
Article
Hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) can improve biomass quality in both physical and chemical aspects for energy application. This study aims to investigate the characteristics and reactivities of rape straw (RS) hydrochars. Hydrochars were prepared at 160-240 °C with residence time of 15-120 min. Mass yield, energy yield, microstructure, functional g...
Article
In this study, co-gasification reactivity and synergy of blended char of bituminous coal (SF) and rice straw (RS) /rice straw hydrochar (RS-HC) prepared at different hydrothermal carbonization (BHT) temperature were investigated in this study. In addition, char structure evolution (active mineral matter and carbon structure) during co-gasification...
Article
Banana residues remain untapped for substantial thermochemical energy conversion. In this study, lab-scale production of hydrochar from banana leaves (BL) by hydrothermal treatment (HT) for solid fuel combustion was investigated. The HT was conducted at 180, 200 and 220 °C for 30 min, resulting in an energy yield of up to 94.0%. The fuel properties...

Full-text available
Reactivity of the solid fuel is one of the important characteristic in gasification. In this study, the reactivity in CO2-gasification of hydrochar and washed hydrochar derived from banana leaves by hydrothermal and washing treatment was examined using thermogravimetric analyzer. The alkali metals (K and Na) retained in the hydrochar after hydrothe...
Article
DOI: 10.1002/elps.201700366 The cover picture shows the simultaneous determination of inorganic and organic anions in liquid by‐product obtained from the hydrothermal treatment (HTT) of biomass residues using capillary electrophoresis with contactless conductivity detection (CE‐C⁴D). The decomposition of biomass to organic acid depends on not only...
Article
A simple and rapid capillary electrophoresis method with capacitively coupled contactless conductivity detection (CE-C⁴D) for the simultaneous determination of inorganic and organic anions in liquid product obtained from the hydrothermal treatment of biomass residues is presented. Under the optimal analytical conditions, limits of detection ranged...
Preprint
Agricultural and agroindustrial wastes are increasingly being used for the generation of fuel products. Banana residues has a potential to be used as biomass energy sources in tropical country due to its availability, fast growing characteristic of banana plant, carbon neutrality and the fact that each banana plant bears only one stem of fruit. The...
Conference Paper
This study explores a method of synthesizing a clay-based ceramic/carbon composite by starch consolidation casting followed by low-temperature reductive sintering. The ceramic slurry was prepared from a ternary powder mixture of 46.7 wt% Lama-lama clay, 18.00 wt% quartz and 35.30 wt% feldspar. The slurry was consolidated with 16.0 wt% potato starch...
