Organic Sulfur Compounds in the Producer Gas from Wood and Grass Gasification

M.D. Kaufman-Rechulski, T.J. Schildhauer & S.M.A. Biollaz
The organic sulfur content of the producer gas from wood and grass gasification is presented. Measurements were conducted using a liquid quench based sampling system and a GC/SCD (gas chromatograph coupled with a sulfur chemiluminescence detector) for analysis of liquid samples generated. For grass gasification up to 33 different compounds have been detected in the producer gas, while for wood gasification, only 5 different compounds have been detected, in a much lower concentration. The influence...
