Studies of the addition of coffee grounds and sugarcane fibers into briquettes were investigated. The use of different biomass aimed at obtaining efficient briquettes with better biofuels characteristics and results. In this work, mechanical and thermal characterizations were studied. The higher percentage of sugarcane fibers in the briquettes promoted an increase of elastic modulus and mechanical resistance. Thermal conversion occurred in temperature range of 200-530°C presenting a devolatilization process, related cellulose and lignin. The results of moisture and ash content of the briquettes presented near values. The good results for higher heating value (HHV) from 20.32−1 to 21.92−1 can be related to the biomass compositions used. Therefore, these agroindustrial wastes presented a good potential for briquetting and reuse as a biofuel source.

In this paper, flow and heat transfer of coal and biomass pellet were studied with discrete element method–computational fluid dynamics (DEM–CFD). Three-dimensional numerical simulation was applied and the modified DEM–CFD coupled with heating transfer model matches heating process well in fluidized bed. Properties of binary particles (coal and biomass pellet) in heating process were revealed by particle temperature, mixing index and heat transfer. Cylindrical biomass pellets exist in broader re...

ABSTRACTThe aim of this study is to scrutinize the use of Calotropis gigantea bast fibers as potential reinforcement in polymer composites. The bast fibers were extracted from the Calotropis gigantea plant bark and some of them were treated with alkali (5 wt.%) solution. The chemical composition, physico-chemical structural properties of the untreated and the alkali treated Calotropis bast fibers were studied. The results of chemical composition analysis indicated that alkali treatment removed m...

This study aimed to evaluate the antioxidant power associated with spent coffee and black tea processing waste. Ethanolic extracts from the samples were prepared in order to determine the quantities/concentrations of the phenolic and flavonoid compounds, polyphenols, and associated levels of antioxidant activity. The results showed that both the spent coffee and black tea waste had high amounts of phenolic compounds and high antioxidant activity rates. The total phenolic and flavonoids content w...

The tannery industry is renowned for the huge amount of toxic solid and liquid waste generated from the cleaning, fleshing, splitting, tanning, shaving and buffing of raw materials. Biomass briquettes are a proven way of generating energy from waste. This study investigates the development and characterization of biomass briquettes from tannery solid wastes (TSWs). TSWs, which comprise hair, flesh, chrome shavings and buffing dust, were collected from a tannery in Kano, Nigeria, to formulate and...

Moisture content (MC) is one of the most important quality parameters of green coffee beans. Therefore, its fast and reliable measurement is necessary. This study evaluated the feasibility of near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy and chemometrics for rapid and non-destructive prediction of MC in intact green coffee beans of both Coffea arabica (Arabica) and Coffea canephora (Robusta) species. Diffuse reflectance (log 1/R) spectra of intact beans were acquired using a bench top Fourier transform NIR i...

Abstract Binders can be employed to improve the particle adhesion, compressive strength, abrasion resistance and energy content of densified biomass, such as briquettes. They may also reduce the energy cost of producing such briquettes, by reducing the compaction pressure, conditioning temperature and the wear on production equipment. This study explored and compared the effects of three different binders, including starch, enhanced treated biosolids and microalgae, on density, durability, energ...

The inadequate and indiscriminate disposal of sugarcane bagasse (SCB) has received much attention. The exploration of bioenergy properties of biomasses and its biochars play an important role in achieving their utilization. In this context, understanding thermal conversion processes of biomass and biochars it is crucial to use them at bioenergy production. The aim of this study was to investigate thermal behavior of SCB biomass residue, as well as his biochar, by thermogravimetric analysis (TG),...

The biosludge was mixed with cotton textile industry residues in ratios of 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100% and briquettes were manufactured in a lab-scale machine at three compaction pressures 6205, 8274 and 10342 kPa. The heating value, chemical characteristic, density, resistance to compression and hygroscopic moisture equilibrium were analyzed. The compaction pressure of 6205 kPa proved ideal for the briquetting process in the laboratory scale because in this pressure the briquettes had the higher per...

Abstract This work aimed to study the kinetic of thermal degradation of red pepper waste as solid biofuel to bioenergy production. The thermal degradation experiments were conducted at three heating rates, 5 °C/min, 7.5 °C/min and 10 °C/min in a thermogravimetric analyzer and oxidative atmosphere. The kinetic analysis was carried out applying the isoconversional model of Ozawa–Flynn–Wall. The activation energy was considerate low and varied 29.49–147.25 kJ/mol. The enthalpies revealed the energy...

Abstract Development and implementation of strategies targeting downstream steps to convert spent mushroom substrate into energy or bioproducts are an urgent matter. This may ensure that edible mushrooms are both sustainable to cultivate and also are able to be competitive with conventional sources of proteins. Accordingly, this study aimed at developing an integrated system to firstly produce oyster mushroom on sugarcane bagasse shaped into briquettes, then, recycle its spent material into fuel...

The re-use of glycerol from biodiesel industry as an alternative lubricant for making high-performance briquettes is usual. However, the technical performance of this agro-industrial residue is not consistent. This study outlines, accordingly, the real risk of introducing glycerol into the co-briquetting of highly caloric by-products of energy-crops. The production of hybrid briquettes consisted of pressing mixtures of residues of sugarcane and sorghum with the liquid additive at 10, 20, and 30 ...
