Biomass torrefaction to produce biocoal gained interest as it solves hindrances encountered when using raw biomass as a solution for power generation. Biocoal is a premium drop-in fuel in pulverized-coal boilers aimed at reducing greenhouse gas and other emissions. Biomass torrefaction produces a material with properties similar to coal. Because these properties can be controlled and reproduced, biocoal can be utilized as a “drop-in” fuel replacement for coal. Coal’s efficiencies and energy generation capabilities are well documented as well as its high level of greenhouse gas and other emissions.
