Description

This function enables to estimate the annual emissions of biomass active drying from the temperature, the initial moisture content, the final moisture content and the type of fuel used to dry the biomass according to Haque and Somerville (2013).

Usage

1
Process_HaqueandSomerville(Temp, MCi, MCf, CE, FP, FU, LHV)

Arguments

Temp

numeric vector. Drying environment temperature (degrees celcius).

MCi

numeric vector. Initial moisture content (kg/kg wb).

MCf

numeric vector. Final moisture content (kg/kg wb).

CE

numeric vector. Conversion efficiency (percentage) of the boiler used to dry the biomass (see conversion_efficiency.csv).

FP

numeric vector. Fuel production emission factor (kg CO2eq/GJ) (see fossil_emission_factors.csv). When biomass is used to dry the material, the user has to introduce his own value.

FU

numeric vector. Fuel use emission factor (kg CO2eq/GJ).(see fossil_emission_factors.csv). When biomass is used to dry the material, the IPCC (2006) default value of 113.9 kg CO2eq/GJ can be used.

LHV

numeric vector. Low heating value of wood biomass. The average default value of 16.1 GJ/odt can be used (IPCC, 2006).

Value

Return a CarbonProcess object.
