The present work focuses both on biomass energy conversion by means of gasification and pyrolysis, and on the tar bioremediation. In the first part a mathematical model, based on Gibbs free energy minimization, has been used to simulate the thermochemical processes and to characterize the producer gas from various feedstocks. Different process configurations have been taken into account by varying a set of parameters (such as equivalent ratio, steam to carbon ratio, temperature, feedstock water...
