  • Biomass gasification with pure steam in fluidised bed: 12 variables that affect the effectiveness of the biomass gasifier

    Biomass gasification in fluidised bed with pure steam has already generated a 60 vol.%, dry basis, H2 rich gas that was increased to 70–80 vol.% H2 by using a CO2 sorbent in the gasifier bed. A tar content as low as 0.25 g/Nm³ has also been reported when an active catalyst is used in the gasifier bed. Biomass gasification in fluidised bed with pure steam, therefore, has some potential ...
