Biomass gasification is an option to exploit residual biomass and promote the decentralized generation of combined heat and power at small scale, and hydrogen or chemicals production at large scale. However, this technology has been facing many challenges, one of them is tar. This work deals with the sampling and characterization of biomass tar, the aim is to provide a critical approach to these stages and provide examples of the use of the experimental data...
