Catalytic Gas Cleaning in Gasification for Energy Conversion of Cynara Cardunculus L.

J.M. Toledo & G. Molina
Some preliminary tests were carried out in order to evaluate the technical feasibility of a catalytic gas cleaning system in the gasification of Cynara cardunculus L. It is well known that this fuel is a very problematic biomass due to the high content of nitrogen, chlorine and alkali (K and Na) in its composition. In order to minimize operational problems, blends of cardoon and small pine wood chips were used as feedstock. The main components...
