Biomass gasification represents one of the most promising and effective methods to cover future energy demands. However the construction and the operation of a biomass gasification plant often involves difficulties. On the one hand the feed should have a stable and uniform composition to assure a certain quality of the producer gas. On the other hand there are explosion protection requirements because explosive gas/air mixtures may occur. Design features based on explosion protection requirements are...
