Biomass Gasification for Syngas Generation in a 100 KWth Steam-Oxygen Blown CFB Gasifier - Gas Quality Optimization and Tar Reduction

M. Siedlecki, A. Litinas & W. De Jong
Syngas production based on biomass gasification is an attractive, feasible alternative to fossil fuel feedstock for the production of transportation fuels. However, gasification product gas using biomass as feedstock must be cleaned and tailored to comply with strict syngas quality requirements, as it consists of a wide variety of major and minor components and impurities. The characterization of such species is important to determine downstream gas treatment steps, and to assess the efficiency of the...
