Design of a High Temperature Chamber Fed by a Plasma Torch for Thermal Removal of Tars: First Results

A. Fourcault, F. Marias & U. Michon
This work deals with the modelling of a high temperature chamber heated with a plasma gas and which is devoted to the cracking of tars produced during gasification of biomass. This reformer (Turboplasma©) is a part of a more general process devoted to the production of electricity from biomass. In a first stage biomass is dried and gasified in a travelling bed gasifier using air with an equivalence ratio of 0.3. This product gas contains...
