The University of Perugia has developed IPRP (Integrated Pyrolysis Regenerated Plant) technology, based on a rotary kiln pyrolyser, of the capacity of 200 kg/h of chipped biomass, coupled with a 70 kWel gas turbine. Data obtained from a continuous test bench, of the capacity of 20 kg/h, and a batch plant (of the capacity of about 1 kg biomass) have been used to scale up the plant. The batch plant has been coupled with a...
