Torrefaction is one of the method to extract biomass energy from its raw form other than direct combustion, thermo chemical transformation, carbonization and others. Torrefaction is a thermal conversion technique for biomass refming process in the oxygen free atmosphere. This process requires atmospheric temperature of200-300°C. In order to achieve this temperature a necessary outside heat need to be supplied to the torrefaction reactor. This heat can be generated from various sources such as electricity, and hydrocarbon combustion. However the usage of this source consumes some already produced electricity and not enviromnentally friendly. Apart from all these energy sources, solar thermal energy also could be used as the energy sources for the torrefaction process as it is enviromnentally friendly and also abundant without the need to use energy in order to extract and use it. The objective of this project is conducted to develop a high temperature solar thermal system for use as an energy source for the torrefaction of biomass. This project focuses developing solar concentrator with tracker, the thermal storage and addition of the existing component including heat exchanger and pump.
