Economy of Scale for CHP Plants Based on Autothermal Fluidized Bed Gasification

T. Schulzke
A complete plant concept for the conversion of solid biomass to electricity and heat with an autother­mal fluidized bed gasification and dry synthesis gas cleaning is developed. Plants with four distinct fuel capacities of 0.1, 1, 5 and 10 MW are further analyzed: firstlythe investment cost are estimated based on commercial offers for main machineryand secondly economic evaluation is performed. Results show that at least a plant with fuel capacity of 10 MW is cost...
