Methods for Wet Torrefaction of a Biomass
BackgroundLignocellulosic biomass is an important and abundant source of renewable energy. However, difficulties in transportation and handling cause issues with the commercialization of its use, due to its low bulk density and tendency to rot if not stored properly. Thermochemical pretreatment through a process of wet torrefaction increases the mass...
