The main objective of the project BIOPELLETS is the development of solid biofuels value chain based on residual forest biomass from Valencian Community’s forests. This value chain includes the several steps of biomass processing, from forest to the consumer, taking into account the logistics, the industrial production and the distribution for its use.
The quantification of residual biomass is the first step to know the regions with a high amount of it. In these regions, field tests for best forest harvesting logistics have been carried out. At the same time, production processes and transport logistics are studied. The aim of it is the knowledge of economic, environmental and social sustainability of the value chain.
The implantation of a pilot plant at laboratory scale for solid biofuels production (pellets) allows the experimental production of pellets from mediterranean forests biomass. These pellets are submitted to a physical and chemical analysis.
