Paper Title
Catalytic Combustion of Grape Skin Wastes in a Conical Spouted Bed Combustor

In this paper, catalytic combustion of grape skins and scrapes has been performed in a conical spouted bed combustor. Combustion has been carried out with inlet air temperature of 550 ÂșC using Pd/Al2O3 catalyst in the spouted bed regime. Combustion efficiency has been calculated from the concentration of CO2, CO (% volume), monitorized by Testo 350 gas analyzer, in the exhaust gases.
