CFD Simulation of a Burner for Syngas Characterization: Preliminary Results and Experimental Validation

M. D'Amico, U. Desideri & F. Fantozzi
Biomass and Waste are distributed and renewable energy sources that may contribute effectively to sustainability if used on a small and micro scale. This requires the transformation through efficient technologies (gasification, pyrolysis and anaerobic digestion) into a suitable gaseous fuel to use in small internal combustion engines and gas turbines. The characterization of biomass derived syngases during combustion is therefore a key issue to improve the performance of small scale integrated plants because synthesis gas...
