This work deals with the modelling of a travelling bed biomass gasifier. This gasifier is a part of a more general process devoted to the production of electricity from biomass. In a first stage biomass is dried and gasified in a travelling bed gasifier using air with an equivalence ratio of 0.3. This product gas contains light hydrocarbons as well as tars. It is converted into a syngas free from tars in a specific reformer...
