Safety and logistic aspects on biomass as RES

Extensive use of solid biofuels involves risks and hazards during the handling. The risks themselves – allergic reactions and auto-ignition – are well known, but the detailed cause and mechanism for auto ignition is yet to be described. Within the current RES-CHAINS project a large number of detailed laboratory experiments have been performed and the preliminary indications are that the relative roles of chemistry and biology in auto-ignition need be changed from what has previously been the dominant theory.
