The supercritical water gasification (SCWG) holds promise as a technology to convert waste biomass into valuable, environmentally friendly energy. It is suitable for energy conversion of wet biomass. Long-time continuous operation with large-sized device is vital for practical realization, but it has not been reported so far. We conducted the successful operation of long-time continuous test with pilot plant (1 t/d treatment capacity). Activated carbon has been reported as a gasification catalyst in SCWG. We...
