Biomass and Waste Industry

In the biomass and waste industry fluid bed dryers are used to dry biomass materials and solid waste materials, sludges and slurries, in order to increase the heating value for biomass and alternative fuels and reduce the volume. Drying takes normally place at lower temperatures between 100 – 200 gr. C by use of waste heat from CHP or boilers.

Examples:

  • RDF
  • poultry
  • litter
  • cow dung
  • dewatered slurry
  • digester sludge
  • fermenter waste
  • lemon peel
  • orange peel
  • manure
  • paper sludge
  • wood
  • biomass
  • etc.
