Biomass power plants require woody biomasses for 12 month/year, while SRF production can be harvested
only from November to March.
Thus, there is a necessity of logistic organization of the power plant supply in order to avoid dry matter losses, biomass
fermentation and to reduce as much as possible handling and transportation costs. A study of drying and hydration process
that occurs during poplar chips storage in open air was conducted. The physical parameters that influences both process
Fermentations process that occurs in wet woody biomass storage were studied.
A study to define the morphological characteristics that harvested poplar should have in order to avoid fermentation and dry
matter losses during storage in open air was carried out.
