Carbon Dioxide Capture through Biomass Gasification

K. Sandeep, S. Snehesh & S. Dasappa
Gasification, a thermo­chemical process, is explored as a promising technology towards carbon capture. The present work focuses on using CO2, from a typical flue of combustion of fuels in an engine or a combustion device, as a co­reactant along with other reacting media. Experiments were conducted with CO2 volume fraction varied from 0 to 15% in a mixture of O2 and N2. Increase in CO2 fraction resulted in decrease in bed temperature, primarily due to...
