Evaluation of alternative fuel for the generation of thermal energy through a boiler


Schafer Alex, Scherer Fernando P, Souza José D

Among the options compatible with the boiler model used by the company, the fuel options were firewood of Acacia decurrens, Eucalyptus globulus, Pinus taeda or Pinus elliottii and dry biomass.
