Next Generation Biomass Gasifier

C. Pfeifer, J. Schmid, T. Pröll & H. Hofbauer
Gasification of solid fuels attracts increasing interest within the energy supply sector. Allothermal concepts typically use steam as gasification agent and require heat input from external sources. In the “classical” dual fluidized bed gasifier, heat is provided in direct contact with hot bed material particles externally heated in a combustion reactor. This type of gasification system is demonstrated in Güssing and Oberwart (Austria) and yields a high quality product gas. Thus, the gas is well...
