To increase the efficiency of biomass integrated gasification fuel cell (B­IGFC) systems, hot gas cleaning technologies are essential. Hot gas filters operating at temperatures higher than 800°C enable not only the application of high temperature sorption materials to eliminate contaminants but also the use of tar reformers downstream of the filtration unit at high temperatures without the need of reheating the product gas. In the progress of the hot gas filter (HGF) development, two long...
