Title: DEVICE AND METHOD FOR TREATING BIOMASS
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a method for treating biomass in a heating plant, in which method the biomass (B) is fed in batches to a fuel dryer (2) and is dried therein by circulation with continuously fed process air (L) and, after drying has taken place, is discharged from the fuel dryer (2). Here, the following method sequence is realized: the process air (L) flowing through the fuel dryer (2) is heated, upstream of the fuel dryer (2), by means of a heating medium in a heat exchanger, and then the process air (L) that has been humidified in the fuel dryer (2) is discharged from the fuel dryer (2), and thereafter the circulation with process air (L) is performed, which ends after a target humidity of the biomass (B) situated in the fuel dryer or of the discharged process air (L) is attained.
