In this work the result of a study on the potential use of Miscanthus biomasses as a source for syngas production by gasification is presented. The study was performed in a pilot gasification plant based on the fluidized bed technology and with a capacity of 50 kg/h, and installed at Portalegre’s Industrial Park, in Portugal. The gasification tests were performed continuously for 5 days, with different proportions of Miscanthus pellets mixed with wood pellets in...
