Title: A BIOMASS COAL FUEL AND METHOD OF PRODUCING SAME
Abstract:
Disclosed is a method of producing biomass coal fuel. The method is directed to applying calcium carbonate to biomass forming a mixture, where the mixture is then compressed under elevated temperatures to form biomass fuel. The biomass fuel is added to coal to form a biomass coal fuel. The biomass fuel is formed from a mixture containing biomass and calcium carbonate results in the neutralization of organic acids found in the biomass and coal. Accordingly, upon combustion of the burning biomass coal fuel, a reduction in acidic by-products occurs.
