A Kinetic Model for a Stratified Downdraft Gasifier

S. Pedrazzi, G. Allesina & P. Tartarini
A model for a stratified downdraft gasifier has been developed. It has been adapted from two different models from literature with appropriate modifications and improvements. The new "interacting" model is able to predict the syngas composition, input and output flow rates and the gasifier cold efficiency under different working condition and with different biomass input. It works assuming a constant biomass consumption. The results of the model has been compared to experimental data taken from...
