• Analysis of optimal temperature, pressure and binder quantity for the production of biocarbon pellet to be used as a substitute for coke 

      Riva, Lorenzo; Nielsen, Henrik Kofoed; Skreiberg, Øyvind; Wang, Liang; Bartocci, Pietro; Barbanera, Marco; Bidini, Gianni; Fantozzi, Francesco (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      In order to contribute to the decarbonization of the economy, efficient alternatives to coal and coke should be found not only in the power sector but also in the industrial sectors (like steel, silicon and manganese ...
    • Considerations on factors affecting biocarbon densification behavior based on a multiparameter model 

      Riva, Lorenzo; Wang, Liang; Ravenni, Giulia; Bartocci, Pietro; Videm Buø, Therese; Skreiberg, Øyvind; Fantozzi, Francesco; Nielsen, Henrik Kofoed (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The optimization of upscaled biochar pelleting is limited by lack of knowledge regarding the effects of process parameters. A multiparameter model, coupled to a single pellet press unit, was for the first time applied to ...
    • Effect of torrefaction on properties of pellets produced from woody biomass 

      Wang, Liang; Riva, Lorenzo; Skreiberg, Øyvind; Khalil, Roger Antoine; Bartocci, Pietro; Yang, Qing; Yang, Haiping; Wang, Xuebin; Chen, Dengyu; Rudolfsson, Magnus; Nielsen, Henrik Kofoed (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Torrefaction has been recognized as a promising strategy to improve handling and storage properties of wood-based pellets, thus producing a uniform-quality commodity with high energy density and hydrophobicity. In this ...
    • Hygrothermal conditions in Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) dwellings 

      Tingstveit, Merethe Solvang; Nielsen, Henrik Kofoed; Risholt, Birgit Dagrun (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The use of CLT has been increasing the last decade, and a subsequently focus on documentation of the accompanying indoor climate and exposed wooden surfaces on human well-being. This study presents the results of a measurement ...
    • Investigation on Ash Slagging Characteristics during Combustion of Biomass Pellets and Effect of Additives 

      Wang, Liang; Skjevrak, Geir; Skreiberg, Øyvind; Wu, Hongwei; Nielsen, Henrik Kofoed; Hustad, Johan Einar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
