1 Wood fuels: pellets and chips Robinwood International Wood Energy Week Eberswalde Polytechnic, 23th January 2006 Anssi Kokkonen North Karelia Polytechnic Joensuu, Finland

2 North Karelia North Karelia Polytechnic (NCP) was founded in 1992 among the first polytechnics in Finland. 7 study fields 22 degree programmes 4000 students 400 teachers and other staff Turnover EUR 25 million (year 2004) Funding from the Ministry of Education Maintained by the City of Joensuu

3 WOOD PELLETS Properties Newly discovered renewable fuel Raw materials are such as industrial wood residues, wood chips and also bark Diameter 6 10 mm and length mm Bulk density in average 650 kg/bulk m 3 (ca. 1,5 m 3 /ton) Low ash content with pure wood pellets, ca. 0,5 % High energy content, 4,7 kwh/kg

4 Why pellets? Why to refine shavings, saw dust etc? More demand for by products better price from by products more profitable operation Refining saw dust into pellets brings logistical benefits It is possible to have large scale production for further markets It is possible to offer a substitute for oil Important new sector of business, both in pellet production and in equipment production

5 Why pellets? The present environmental situation forces to find sustainable energy solutions Important way to decrease CO 2 emissions: Wood is classified as CO 2 emission free fuel Heating households with wood pellets instead of oil cuts CO 2 emissions ca tons annually The use of pellets enables ecologically sensible energy solutions

6 Comparison of different fuels firewood pile m 3 wood chips, loose m 3 wood pellet, ton light oil, m 3 firewood pile m 3 1 1,9 0,34 0,16 wood chips, loose m 3 0,5 1 0,18 0,09 wood pellet, ton 2,9 5,5 1 0,47 light oil, m 3 6,3 11,8 2,13 1

7 The use of pellets Wood pellets are suitable for heating onefamily houses, farms, block buildings They are also used in different size heating and power plants At big power or heating plants, when using pulverized combustion, the pellets are crushed prior to feeding Conversion techniques for almost every purpose can be found (wood gas applications etc.)

8 Pellet stove (Thermorossi from Italy) Pellet heating unit for household (KWB from Austria)

9 The use of pellets The situation in some countries: Finland, ca users Sweden, ca users Germany, ca users Future visions for 2010, Finland as an example: the share of pellet heating in new houses 30 % houses with pellet heating the potential is big: ca one family houses with oil heating

10 Production of pellets in 2005 ca tn

11 Problems with pellets The production is a complicated process The equipment needed are expensive The skills needed do not come from a quidebook The early stage requires special knowledge of raw materials, equipment and markets / end use Difficult entering of markets The EU wide standard for biofuels is not yet fully operating Undeveloped markets of heating equipment We have not enough research results to promote the markets Especially about the emissions

12 Pellets in North Carelia Pellets started to come less than 10 years ago One pellet mill (Vapo Oy, municipality of Ilomantsi) Capacity ca tn/a, recent investments Users are mostly private houses and municipalities, effect range kw (almost 20 over 50 kw centres) Interest in pellets is strongly rising, due the high oil and electricity prices

13 Pellets in North Carelia Finlands leading areas in development of pellet sector

14 Pneumatic filling of pellet silo (Nursing home in North Carelia)

15 WOOD CHIPS Different sources Logging residue chips: The chips are made from harvesting area leftovers, like branches and tree tops The quality is best suitable for bigger heating and power plants, not for small heating stations

16 Logging residues for fuel

17 Different sources Whole tree chips: The trees are chipped with branches The raw material is undelimbed tree, which is usually from underproductive forests, seeding stands or first thinnings Used at smaller size heating stations, sometimes also at farms and homes when the quality matches

18 Piling small sized whole trees for forest transportation and chipping

19 Different sources Stem chips: The raw material is delimbed stemwood, which is not suitable for trade Best quality as there are no branches being chipped, homogenous chip size Used at smaller stations, like farms and households

20 Making chips from stems

21 Different sources Chips from wood industry : Mainly from sawmills pure wood material, without bark good raw material for pulp production too expensive for fuel

22 Quality properties of wood chips The most important quality properties of wood chips are: moisture content, w % bulk density, kg/l m 3 net calorific value, MJ/kg (or energy density kwh/lm 3 ) particle size All the reasonable means to decrease the moisture content of wood fuel should be used reasonable = ways of handling and storing, free energy from the sun, artificial drying with free or cheap renewable energy..

23 Forest fuels bring profits New local income possibilities fuel from own forests wood fuel production transportation of wood fuels heat entrepreneurship, district heating plants using wood fuel Forest management improves better exploiting of forests and wood forces to study the consequences Intensify the use of existing machines (e.g. farm tractors) of forest owners

24 Taking samples of chips for energy density calculation at Eno heating plant, North Carelia

25 Manual felling of trees for energy

26 Advantages of forest chips Easy production Steady, competitive price level Renewable fuel reduces greenhouse gas emissions Offers job opportunities, especially locally / regionally Improves self sufficiency in energy

27 Disadvantages of forest chips Moist fuel possibility of mould Unhomogeneous particles heavy, large conveyors Low energy density fuel needs large storage space problems in logistics: consumers have to be near production, long distance transportation is not economical

28 Use of forest chips in Finland
