Impact of mill type on biomass mill behavior (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Williams, O., Eastwick, C., Lester, E., Giddings, D., & Lormor, S. (in press). Impact of mill type on biomass mill behavior

With increasing use of biomass in pulverized fuel coal fired power stations, the impact of mill type on biomass size and shape is fundamental in optimizing mill and burner performance. The impact of mill type on the energy consumption, particle size... Read More

Carbon capture and utilisation: application of life cycle thinking to process design (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Cuellar-Franca, R., Dimitriou, I., Garcia-Gutierrez, P., Elder, R. H., Allen, R. W., & Azapagic, A. (2015). Carbon capture and utilisation: application of life cycle thinking to process design

Applying life cycle thinking at an early design stage can help engineers to deliver sustainable systems by design. To demonstrate how this can be carried out at a practical level, this paper proposes a simplified methodology for integrating life cycl... Read More

The impact of moisture on the milling behavior of different biomasses (2014)
Conference Proceeding
Williams, O., Eastwick, C., Lester, E., Giddings, D., & Byrne, N. (2014). The impact of moisture on the milling behavior of different biomasses

The aim of this study was to examine the impact of moisture content on the milling behaviour of four different biomasses commonly used in the power sector and characterise their milling behaviour in a laboratory scale planetary ball mill. As received... Read More

Optimisation of biomass milling for conveyance and combustion (2013)
Conference Proceeding
Williams, O., Eastwick, C., Lester, E., Giddings, D., & Byrne, N. (2013). Optimisation of biomass milling for conveyance and combustion

Agricultural wastes are increasingly being used as biomass materials for co-firing in coal fired power stations. However issues in milling and conveyance of agricultural residues are limiting the use of these resources and a greater understanding of... Read More

Efficiency evaluation of a novel supercapattery stack with a power electronic interface for energy storage systems
Conference Proceeding
Kulsangcharoen, P., Klumpner, C., Zhou, X., Peng, C., Chen, G. Z., Rashed, M., & Asher, G. (in press). Efficiency evaluation of a novel supercapattery stack with a power electronic interface for energy storage systems

The increase of renewable energy generation seen as the only way to ensure clean and sustainable development, is under scrutiny due to its intermittent nature and an insufficient development of com-plementary technologies such as electrical energy st... Read More
