The report gives results of a study of biomass combustion alternatives. The objective was to evaluate the thermal performance and costs of available and developing biomass systems. The characteristics of available biomass fuels were reviewed, and the performance parameters of alternate power generating systems were evaluated using a thermodynamic model. The results were compared with available information on commercially available equipment. Capital and operating costs were also estimated. The selection of an optimum biomass combustion system depends on available fuel and the specific application. A case study of an ethanol plant was conducted to illustrate the key considerations.
