Characteristics of Aerosol Particles from Steam and Oxygen Gasification of Various Biofuels

E. Gustafsson, L. Lin & M. Strand
The present study investigated how the characteristics of the particulate matter (PM) from steam and oxygen gasification of biomass were affected by the biofuel used. The results show that the biofuel had a large impact on the fine mode PM generated during the gasification, both on the particle size distribution and on the elementary composition. When using miscanthus as fuel, high concentrations of ultrafine particles consisting of potassium chloride were formed compared to when using...
