An analysis of the different condensate streams will provide the type, quantity and quality data on water purity and of the chemical species found. The project also necessitates the development of additional biomass products where NUST will contribute in assessing the superheated steam process outputs. These include both solid biofuel and condensate streams with different feedstock sources and processing conditions.
The SBA Project will address two significant challenges facing the Otjozondjupa region; namely the need for clean, secure, and reliable energy; and the need to address the challenge of encroacher bush and other invasive woody biomass species.
The SBA aims to produce clean burning, solid biofuel that will replace charcoal and wood for cooking and heating. It will also replace coal in power generation. The project offers a more sustainable and economically competitive energy approach for both households and industry users.
