Steam Production from Spent Mushroom Bed Applying Fixed-Bed Gasification Technique

S. Igawa, T. Yamagishi & T. Matsui
Small and middle scale biomass utilisation has recently been emphasised in Japan to deal with limited amount of feasible biomass collection, variety of biomass feedstock and variety of ways of energy use. The aim of the present study is to demonstrate that spent mushroom bed discharged from an artificial mushroom factory may be effectively applied as renewable feedstock for steam production. The system capable of converting 1.5t per a day of feedstock to steam consists...
