17 Advantages of using Dry Fuel Higher net calorific value & efficiency Dry fuel is easier to store & meter which gives better combustion control Fuel is stable & will not rot in storage Less CO2 emissions Low Humidity exhaust & lower acid dew point Smaller gas cleaning systems Lower exhaust volume Less visible plume If wet sludges are produced on site dryer gives a consistent fuel

18 Flexible Fuel solution can burn multiple fuels Any organic waste material Fibre or Bran Sawdust Waste wood Straw Lignin Dried sludges municipal & Industrial Biogas or waste liquid fuel via auxilliary burner
