The combustion of a viscous biofuel, liquefied wood (LW) produced via solvolysis of lignocellulosic biomass in acidified glycols, has been studied in a small gas turbine rig. The test rig includes a modified injection line which is compatible with acidic, viscous biofuels allowing fuel preheating and two pilot injectors, and a re-designed combustion chamber. The link between fuel properties and combustion performance of liquefied wood is investigated by burning the biofuel at different blending ratios with ethanol. Exhaust emissions have been compared to reference measurements with diesel fuel and ethanol. Combustion analysis is supported by the investigation of the engine operating parameters and the main emission species at different electrical loads. The experimental study reveals that it is possible to establish efficient operation of the micro gas turbine while utilizing liquefied wood-ethanol blends with high share of liquefied wood.
