D2.4 Delivery of Conditioned FPBO – Executive Summary

Numerous FPBO samples will be sent around between the partners over the course of the four-year Residue2Heat project. Sample delivery is a joint task, partners VTT and BTG will supply the consortium with (conditioned) FPBO samples. The sample delivery will be described throughout the project in seven deliverables (D2.2 – D2.8) and is connected to Task 2.1. To have a full overview, each deliverable report will be an updated version of the previous one, rather than a new report describing only the delivery in the relevant reporting period. A detailed analysis on the production of FPBO from different biomass and processing conditions will be documented in Deliverable D2.1 (due in M26). Details on the analysis results of the various samples sent to the project partners will be performed in Task 3.1 and its related deliverables (D3.1-D3.8) which will provide feedback for WP2, and will be employed in WP4 and WP5 in modelling and utilization.

Deliverable 2.4 is marked as public although it will be primarily used for Residue2Heat (internal) uniform documentation of samples and to have a document which other deliverables can use to keep track of the samples.

In the current reporting period (M13-M18), the following samples were sent around:

– 1 litre of bark derived FPBO (pilot plant) from BTG to VTT (June 2017)
– 1 litre of bark derived FPBO (mini plant) from BTG to VTT (June 2017)
– 1 litre of miscanthus derived FPBO (pilot plant) from BTG to VTT (June 2017)
– 1 litre of miscanthus derived FPBO (mini plant) from BTG to VTT (June 2017)
– 5 litre of bark derived FPBO (pilot plant) from BTG to OWI (June 2017)
– 5 litre of miscanthus derived FPBO (pilot plant) from BTG to OWI (June 2017)

In addition BTG and VTT are using various FPBO samples for their own conditioning research in WP2.

Furthermore, some solid samples are sent around, in the current reporting period (M13-M18) the following solid samples were delivered:

– 1 kilogram of bark biomass was send by BTG to VTT for analysis in WP3 (February 2017).
– 1 kilogram of miscanthus biomass was send by BTG to VTT for analysis in WP3 (February 2017).
– 4 kilogram of ash from the fast pyrolysis of forest residue has been send by VTT to UIBK for activities in WP6 (April 2017).
– 0.7 kilogram of ash from the fast pyrolysis of wheat straw has been send by VTT to UIBK for activities in WP6 (April 2017).
– 9 kilogram of ash from the fast pyrolysis of bark has been send by BTG to UIBK for activities in WP6 (May 2017).
– 9 kilogram of ash from the fast pyrolysis of miscanthus has been send by BTG to UIBK for activities in WP6 (May 2017).
