Learning outcomes of the course
The students know the main solid and liquid refined biofuel products and their production processes, as well as the basics of biogas production. They can estimate the raw material flows of a pellet and briquette factory, the field area required for biofuel production, the biogas production potential of different biomasses, and the prerequisites for production in the Finnish climate. The students are familiar with the production process of biodiesel from oil plant seeds and the utilization techniques of biogas in the countryside.
- the production techniques and economy of solid and liquid biofuels and biogas
- the production and practical application of pellets, briquettes, biodiesel and biogas
