Biomass research and development

Experimental evaluation and analysis of biomass processes, chipping/drying/pyrolysis/burning.

History of BMC

part II: from miniponics to machine learning.

Simulation

Every new method or process being developed requires a deep understanding of the phenomena involved.

Computer and physical simulations are carried out to shed light on the relevant aspects of the system.

Optimization

Once the interaction between the parameters is understood, a process of tuning the controllable variables is carried out in order to find the best combinations, generally optimizing for maxium production, minimize time and cost and increase yield.

Innovation

After understanding the processes involved and having validated the improvements through a series of physical and computational simulations, the construction of a prototype or computer software is built for the task.

Selected Publications

Ash related

Biomass is regarded as a renewable source of energy and is playing a role in future fuel supply trend, with great acceleration. However, due to the chemical composition of the ash of certain types of biomass (particularly short rotation crops like grasses, canes and straws), boiler related problems have occurred systematically in the past. These fuels are rich in alkaline metals (potassium, phosphorus, chlorine and sodium) which form complex eutectic salts that effectively lower the melting point of the ashes during combustion and cause fouling and slagging problems, especially in superheater tubes.

Remote Sensing Applications in Precision Agriculture

Remote sensing technologies are being used more and more often in the agricultural business for the simple reason that the variables to be measured and controlled are very disperse in remote areas with limited wireless communications or no power supply, among other demands.

This work reviews the latest research trends regarding the application of data processing from remotely acquired data, in particular to pattern recognition from aerial imagery. Two validation cases are presented: evaluation of Eucalyptus forest inventory from UAV images and data processing and extraction of production parameters from acquired data from harvester.
