F. Castagno, A. Loschetter, S. Seidelt & L. Lelait
Gasification enables the conversion of solid biomass into syngas. “Syngas”, also called “biosyngas” or “synthesis gas” is a fuel which contains H2 and CO among other things. It presents advantages regarding homogeneity, fuel handling and energy density, and offers the opportunity to use promising energy conversion processes. Nowadays gasification is still not a competitive solution due to techno-economical considerations, especially concerning the presence of tar in the syngas. Tar production in current gasifiers is too...
