Effect of Iron Enrichment in Olivine Bed Material on the Fuel Gas Quality Produced via Steam/O2 Gasification Process

C. Freda, F. Nanna, E. Fanelli, A. Villone & D. Barisano
Tests of steam/O2 gasification were carried out at a 10 kWth internally circulating bubbling fluidized bed (ICBFB) reactor in the presence of a new catalytic bed material (10% Fe/Olivine). For comparison, reference tests using unmodified olivine were also carried out. The ICBFB reactor was operated at the gasification conditions of: 855 °C, 0.33 ER, 0.64 S/Bdaf, atmospheric pressure. During the gasification tests, the raw gas was monitored with respect to water content, gas composition and...
