Paper Abstract

The use of woody biomass is becoming more and more important as a renewable energy source. The context of developing long-lasting and resilient technologies is also linked to the reduction of harmful substances released environment. These two goals are contradictory. The burning process of combustible wood biomass will be modeled in this paper. It is known that it can be converted by various technological processes so as to obtain gas, liquid or solid fuel on the one hand as well as chemical derivatives on the other. Modeling the process occurring within the combustion can be used to study the processes of used installations which may include thermo-chemical reactors such as those for pyrolysis, burners, incinerators, gasifiers etc. The main goal, pursued by modeling, is to determine the efficiency of the combustion process compared to other more classical methods. This study will use CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) modeling, based on numerical simulation. CFD modeling allows the physical and chemical properties of biomass in the reactor to be quantified based on a set of parameters of the working environment, depending on the biomass material parameters implementation. The interpretation of the obtained results allows the analysis of the biomass energy generation conditions so that we can understand and then optimize the dynamics of the processes inside the reactors.
