Semi Carbonized Densified Biomass (SCDB) is a form of solidified biomass fuel that can be utilized in extreme furnace conditions. SCDB production methods create a fuel source in which a substantial portion of the moisture content and volatile components of the raw biomass have been removed, leaving a composition of mostly a densified, carbon fuel source. The purpose of creating a SCDB is to effectively convert biomass into a high energy content, sustainable fuel with environmentally friendly impact.
SCDB is a result of processing in which raw biomass material is pressure-formed while being heated under substantially sealed-up conditions. The semi-carbonized solid is produced by carbonizing the raw biomass material without releasing combustible gas or liquid. The pre-semi-carbonized or semi-carbonized solid has a maximum compressive strengths between 60-200 MPa and a calorific values between 18-23 MJ/kg. The pre-semi-carbonized or semi-carbonized solid matter has an apparent specific gravity near 1.20-1.38 g/cm3.
