This booklet presents vital insights into the combustion habit of novel power plants and agricultural fuels. It describes a brand new experimental method of combustion assessment, related to basic, bench-scale and commercial-scale reports. The reports provided have been performed on consultant biomass power plants: a woody biomass poplar (Populus sp. or poplar) and an herbaceous biomass brassica (Brassica carinata or brassica). additionally, agricultural residues of Manihot esculenta or cassava have been additionally analyzed. the most accomplishments of this paintings are threefold. to start with, it deals an in depth characterization of the above-mentioned fuels, their ash chemistry and their emissions of either reliable debris and gaseous compounds that shape at average grate combustion stipulations. Secondly, it offers an in-depth research of ash fractionation tactics for significant ash species. Thirdly, it describes the position of a few serious and risky key parts (K, Cl, S and P) in grate-ﬁred combustion platforms and elucidates the most diﬀerences within the ash chemistry in the course of combustion of Si-rich and P-rich fuels. All in all, this paintings offers novel insights at the uncomplicated and basic mechanisms of biomass grate combustion with a distinct concentrate on ash transformation and highlights very important concerns and proposals that have to be thought of for a suitable conversion of ash-rich fuels and for the advance of destiny know-how within the context of either small- and medium-scale biomass-based warmth and gear production.
