Experimental Comparison of Performance of Lithuanian Dolomite and Waste Tires Char for Steam Reforming of Real Tars from Biomass Gasification

N. Striugas, K. Zakarauskas & G. Stravinskas
The main objective of this work is investigation of catalytic tar destruction in order to evaluate two selected catalysts, namely dolomite, available in Lithuania as natural resource, and char derived from pyrolysis of used tires. The efficiency of these catalysts were investigated as an ability to decompose tar hydrocarbons at high temperatures and optimal process conditions were determined, which are base starting point for developing new functional technological solution. Results of catalytic steam reforming of...
