Small scale biomass gasification is one of the most interesting option for lignocellulosic biomass and wastes. Small scale systems are attractive for farmers since the low energy density of biomass fuels makes transportation a relevant cost factor: valorisation of agricultural residues is gaining particular interest as they are considered "no land using" and potentially low cost biomass. CREAR /RE-CORD installed, in an experimental area located South of Florence, an innovative gasification system for multi-fuel applications...
