Gasification of Reed in a 100kW Dual Fluidized Bed Steam Gasifier

H. Kitzler, C. Pfeifer & H. Hofbauer
In the last years, the European Union has been focused on biomass as renewable energy source. Within the project ENEREED the reed (phragmites communis) from the Lake Neusiedl in Austria, near to Vienna, is examined as energy resource. To characterize the reed, different samples were taken and fuel analyses were done. After the characterization, reed was used in pelletized form as feedstock in a 100 kWth (reed input) dual fluidized bed (DFB) steam gasifier at...
