An experimental investigation of the combustion performance of human faeces

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Dry human faeces have a Higher Heating Value (HHV) of 24 MJ/kg.

Faeces combustion was investigated using a bench-scale downdraft combustor test rig.

Combustion temperature of 431–558 °C was achieved at air flow rate of 10–18 L/min.

Fuel burn rate of 1.5–2.3 g/min was achieved at air flow rate of 10–18 L/min.

Combustion temperature of up to 600 ± 10 °C can handle 60 wt.% moisture in faeces.

Combustion temperature of up to 600 ± 10 °C can handle 60 wt.% moisture in faeces.

(a–d): Influence of equivalence ratio on: (a) combustion temperature, (b) fuel burn rate, (c) MCE, and (d) ηCCE, as a function of fuel ignition mode (booster, B and standard, S) and varying fuel types (wood biomass, WB and simulant faeces, SF).

Mentions: Fig. 2(a–d) presents the effect of equivalence ratio on fuel burn rate, combustion temperature, MCE and ηCCE, considering two modes of ignition (standard and booster) for the use of simulant faeces and wood biomass.
