Gasification of biomass to generate heat and power for decentralized purposes has become a very attractive technology over recent years. These gasification processes and systems have to handle with a very high organic-condensate load [1] in the producer gas. To cope with these high condensate loads and to clean up the producer gas of the high tar content the biodiesel scrubber [2] was developed. Beside the complex cleaning process of the producer gas with the...
