Wood Fuels

Wood chips
Chipped woody biomass in the form of pieces with a defined particle size produced by mechanical treatment with wood chipers. (Wood chips have a sub-rectangular shape with a length of between 5 and 50 mm). In order to burn wood chips, they must first be dried, Suxé bulk dry the chips by using some of the excess heat from combustion fed back to the drying station at the fuel input stage. Increase of moisture content decreases the efficiency of energy production and increases flue gas amounts (incomplete combustion)
Wood pellets
Densified biofuel made from pulverised woody biomass with or without additives, usually in cylindrical form, of various lengths but typically 5 to 40 mm, with broken ends. Wood pellets are generally made from compacted sawdust
Wood briquettes
Densified biofuel made with or without additives in cubiform or cylindrical units, produced by compressing pulverised biomass.

These fuels are preferred, because of the advantages they offer e.g. they are easier to handle and store, and feeding can be automated.

Why Wood?

Wood is a Renewable energy source, it grows with the help of solar energy.

„ When a tree decomposes it releases as much carbon dioxide (CO2) as when it is burned that means wood is considered as a CO2-neutral fuel

„ Wood becomes economic as a fuel choice for making electricity, if large quantities of wood are available in the area where the Power station is located. Long transportation distances increase the transport costs and increase the emmissions caused by the transportation.

The March 13, 2009 issue of Science magazine points out that creating thermal and electrical energy with Suxé advanced wood combustion by has been growing quickly throughout Europe. “Suxé burners release remarkably low quantities of air pollutants and have system-wide thermal efficiencies approaching 90 percent,” the cost of wood fuel is several times cheaper than fossil fuel costs (per unit of energy produced).

Suxé Burners

Suxé's design has been based on African needs.

Suxé burners provide a modern and 'Clean' solution to power generation problems using wood. Our high temperature combustion together with a computer controlled process that continuously moniors the amount of Oxygen in the combustion chamber.

Conventional wood burning equipment generally provides too much Oxygen and the free Oxygen (that which is not used in the combustion process) will combine with the Carbon to make Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide it will also combine with the Nitrogen from the air to make Nitrogen Oxide, Sulphur is not an issue with wood.

Suxé's Advanced combustion technology, continually monitors and adjusts the Oxygen input to provide exactly 100% of what Oxygen is needed to completely and perfectly burn the wood. Incomplete combustion produces Carbon Monoxide whereas complete combustion only produces only Carbon Dioxide

As wood is a Carbon Neutral fuel, this is the condition that Suxé strive for.
