Gasification of Pinewood Sawdust for Hydrogen Production: Influence of Steam/ Biomass Ratio

A. Erkiaga, M. Amutio, G. López, M. Artetxe & M. Olazar
The steam gasification of sawdust has been carried out in a gasification bench scale plant provided with a conical spouted bed reactor. The effect of steam to biomass ratio over the gasification process has been studied in the 0-2 range. The products obtained have been classified into three different fractions: gas, tar and char. When the ratio of steam/biomass has been changing since 0 to 2, the gas mass reduces because the amount of CO...
