This research funding aims to broaden and support logistically the activities of project 99/01064-3. Research will be directed in two directions: the study of the torrefication process of briquettes of sugarcane bagasse and the study of the phenomena of heat transfer in the torrefication oven (in operation). Both studies aim to improve the performance and the scope of the proposed system. To support this activity, it is proposed to invite Professor Dr. Pedro Beaton, vice rector of the Universidad de Oriente - Cuba, for a period of 30 days. The proposals and the logistical requirements to bring this about are in the body of the text. The visitor will also collaborate on a course of interdisciplinary Energy Planning. (AU)
