Experimental Investigation of the Upgrading of Producer Gas with CO2 over a Bed of Activated Charcoal Made from Waste Tire

N. Striugas, K. Zakarauskas & G. Stravinskas
For some time the charcoal obtained from biomass pyrolysis has mostly been used elsewhere. A research group at the Lithuanian Energy Institute developed a reactor for fast gasification of used tires where char is produced as a by-product. The residual char may be used for direct combustion as fuel and also for the proposed thermal catalytic tar cracking. This work investigates catalytic removal of real tars produced during biomass pyrolysis over the char obtained by...
