Comparison Between Thermodynamic Calculations and Measurements of the Volatility of Inorganic Species from Different Biomasses During Steam Gasification in a Fluidized Bed

F. Defoort, S. Ravel, P. Castelli & M. Campargue
The objective of this study concerns the behavior of inorganics during the steam gasification of biomasses by an approach consisting to compare thermodynamic calculations with experiments. Calculations were performed in the same conditions as the experiments with the adequate software (Factsage or Gemini2) and compounds associated database. Measurements were performed during steam gasification of wood and pellets of agricultural residues called Calys in the bubbling fluidized bed (LFHT) reactor coupled with the high temperature reactor...
