In this paper, catalytic partial oxidation is applied as a thermo¬chemical method to remove tar from biogas and convert it into fuel gas by using a combined catalyst and oxygen carrier system. In this method, the amount of oxygen needed for the partial oxidation of tar will be supplied by an oxygen carrier, which will also serve as a carrier of the catalyst. Based on the results of laboratory tests, the perovskite material CSFM (Ca0.5Sr0.5Fe0.5Mn0.5O3¬d)...
