A solar power system for producing useful fuels and chemicals from biomass waste
To design an innovative solar heating system with a solar tracking system and solar power supply system which aims to convert biomass waste materials to char products, namely charcoal, biochar and activated carbon through pyrolysis with the use of renewable energy. The fabricated solar heating system is 100% driven by solar energy and is a zero-carbon emission and conversion system. It has a short payback period of less than 7 years and it is generally economically viable, with a minimum requirement of land. It is hoped that the project will contribute to both environment and optimisation of power storage to discover cost-effective designs in the future.
