Gasification of Wastes in a Pilot Fluidized Bed Gasifier

M. Campoy, A. Gómez-Barea, P. Ollero, S. Nilsson & D. Fuentes-Cano
A technical assessment of gasification of various wastes in fluidized bed was made by conducting test in a 100 kWth pilot plant. The reactor was operated under simulated autothermal and adiabatic conditions, thus allowing scaling-up the results to industrial units. Four feed stocks were tested: orujillo, meat and bone meal, dried sewage sludge and compost from municipal solid waste. The tests were made for each fuel by changing the air ratio (stoichiometric ratio), allowing characterization...
