Combined Heat and Power (CHP) generation is considered as a major alternative to traditional energy production systems in terms of efficiency and environmental conservation. Therefore, a small mobile agricultural residue gasification unit for decentralized CHP production is designed and constructed within the framework of the LIFE+ project “SMARt-CHP”. This unit applies the technology of biomass gasification coupled with an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE)-generator set for CHP production. The CHP unit has a maximum output of...
