The Floating Bed Reduction Reactor - Findings on the Key Component of the Innovative Multi-Staged SCE Biomass Gasification Process

B. Bodner, G. Kreutner, J. Krueger & M.B. Huber
In the area of decentralised combined heat and power (CHP) plants, the importance of biomass gasification shows a steady growth. Multi­staged fixed­bed gasification systems offer the highest potential due to their low tar content in the fuel gas and the high efficiency. When thinking of commercial­sized plants above 150kWel the pressure drop over the fixed bed acts as a limiting parameter for many ambitious systems. An auspicious approach to avoid these problems is the new...
