Intensification du séchage thermique de micro-algues par association avec le drainage capillaire.

Student: Mme Thouraya GHNIMI
Period : 3 ans, début en 2015
Staff: M. Mohamed BAGANE (ENIG, Tunisie), M. Lamine HASSINI (FST,
Tunisie), Mme Hélène DESMORIEUX (Lagep), M. Roman PECZALSKI (Lagep).

Purpose and objectives of the thesis:
Combining thermal drying and capillary draining may allow for: processing a thicker biomass layer, increasing the drying rate, applying a lower temperature heating and thus finally reducing the energy consumption.
The aim of the thesis is to study experimentally the combined thermal (convective or radiative heating) and capillary process, to identify the rate controlling drying mechanisms, to model the heat and water transfer, to evaluate the efficiency of the process and to scale it up for industrial purposes.Etudiant : Mme Thouraya GHNIMI
