Euro Therm develops new grates for combustion of biomass for district heating. In cooperation with Teldust, FORCE Technology and DTU they are now going to optimise their products so that they become even more efficient and environmentally friendly. INBIOMs steering committee has just granted 400,000 DKK to the project, so the cooperation with FORCE Technology and DTU can help to develop the products further.

Denmark is in the lead in relation to biomass boilers, and the market is evolving fast, so the potentials for jobs are great. The project is about efficiency and reduced emission of particles from the boiler. Focus is on air distribution and control of the grate, the combustion and the dust concentration as well as distribution of particle sizes in the chimney.
With FORCE Technology 's 3D model of the combustion processes, the project will contribute to:
Development of a new grate for Euro Therm
Gaining knowledge about particles from the combustion of biomass, specifically for the benefit of Teldust
Development of design models, which will be used for optimisation of other boiler suppliers’ design
Parts of the project must be performed at Hinnerup District Heating and is a combination of measurements and model calculations.
- The project is a good example of business and knowledge cooperation, Henrik Hassing from FORCE Technology says and continues:
- The project uses our advanced models and measurement techniques, and the result will be improved techniques in practice, so that Euro Therm and Teldust can improve their competitive position . We hope that the project results can form the basis of an actual prototype of the new grate, concludes Henrik Hassing .
