Conclusions

It is concluded that:

· a suspension burner system, to combust particulate woodwaste efficiently at a rate of up to 28 kg/h, and provide a heat output of approximately 500 MJ/h, has been successfully developed;
· an alternative system for the combustion of groundnut shells, coir dust and rice husks, such as the dual-chamber brick-built furnace is required;
· the choice of feeder system is likely to depend on equipment availability and the characteristics of the material to be fed; and
· a suspension burner/timber drying system of 16 m3 capacity using woodwaste as a fuel has been successfully developed.
