Tar Analysis in Syngas from Biomass Gasification: Comparison of Different Methods

S. Ravel, S. Thiery, A. Dufour & E. Masson
This paper deals with an important point for biomass gasification processes: the measurement of tars. The well known tar protocol technique is reliable but not very simple to implement in different points of a process and it is not precise for low concentrations of tars (<100 mg/Nm3). Tests were performed using a pilot scale fluidized bed producing a real syngas. Tar were measured in a wide range of concentration from mg to g/ Nm3. Tar...
