The main goals of the project include:

  • find a comprehensive solution for the combustion chamber of a micro-cogeneration unit for solid fuels based on biomass with a high content of ash and water,
  • design a mechanical moving grate including its cooling,
  • solve the optimal air supply to the combustion chamber of the micro-cogeneration unit and possible recirculation of flue gases in the hearth,
  • contribute to the "Ecodesign" label of the Wave 120 kW product,
  • allow to burn a completely new group of fuels in micro-cogeneration ORC units,
  • inform the academic community about the achieved proposal through a professional publication at an international conference.
