Waste Wood: From Gasification Tests in the Pilot Plant to Simulation of Industrial Applications

V. Wilk & H. Hofbauer
Waste wood has been gasified in the dual fluidised bed gasifier at Vienna University of Technology. This article sums up the experiences of the test runs and describes how they can be used for the design of a waste wood gasifier on industrial scale. During the experiments, the producer gas and flue gas composition are measured, as well as tars, dust and char. Experimental data is used for a simulation tool to calculate mass- and...
