Gasification Behavior of Blended Biomass Pellets in a Small-Scale Fluidized Bed Reactor

A. Schneider, D. Hein, F. Wiedenmann & W. Krumm
Pellets blended from biogeneous residues, energy crops, and industrial residues offer alternative options for energetic use of wood. Incineration and gasification behavior of alternative fuels partly differ widely from those of wood. A combination of all advantages and disadvantages of each fuel may lead to a well-designed fuel blend. The effects of different fuel blends on the gasification behavior are the focus of this investigation. Wood, straw, miscanthus and their blends were gasified with steam...
