  • Wood instead of petroleum?

    The other day I found an interesting article from Scientists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) and at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, USA.  The artical discusses how the two recently managed to synthesize two complex chemical substances from wood-based starting materials.  You can find the link here:  Wood instead ...

  • Biofuels Gas Monitoring

    The Customer The Company is one of the world’s leading developers and producers of advanced fuels and green chemicals. The Process The Company uses a gasification process that breaks down wood chips, waste and other feedstock using plasma technology. The process produces a uniform synthetic gas (syngas) that is used to power their turbine engines. ...

  • APL in the Field: Powertainer install at UNM Morris - University of Minnesota, Morris, Minnesota - Case Study

    In a partnership with Cummins Inc., APL worked with University of Minnesota in Morris to develop a prototype shipping-container-based 100 kW genset running on Minnesota's plentiful agricultural waste corn cobs. With the help of a grant from the California Energy Commission, APL is currently partnered with University of ...

  • Renewable energy in chemical industry – the case of formic acid production

    This paper analyses the economical viability of replacing fossil energy by renewable sources by taking CO2 emission legislation into account. A single chemical industry case, formic acid production, is studied in a tangible manner to provide a concrete example for industrial managers and legislators. The practical case was supported by examining scientific and other databases. This study ...

  • Quantitative assessment of solar energy geo-policy risks

    Fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, gas, and wood, are the major part of contemporary energy mix. However, forecasts predict that solar energy will take up to 70% of global energy mix by year 2100. Solar energy has embedded risks, e.g., social, geopolitical, health-related, etc. These risks should be addressed in advance to prevent negative consequences but little research has addressed systemic ...

  • Exergetic performance assessment of gasification and pyrolysis processes of pre-treated wood board wastes

    This paper investigates exergetic performance of gasification and pyrolysis processes and compares their exergy efficiencies, using the experimental data on a two-step process of thermo-chemical conversion of Wood Board (WB) wastes. The exergy values of biomass samples change from 17.49 MJ/kg to 24.57 MJ/kg, respectively. Hydrogen produced from pyrolysis step of gasification varies between 17 ...

  • Small-scale heat and power at B.C. mills

    Fred Scott introduced the B.C. Bioenergy Network (BCBN) as an alliance between Pristine and Nexterra Energy Corp. BCBN is a network of 15–20 individuals, with 10 MW power plants located across B.C. at mill operations in forest communities. Nexterra has developed a proprietary gasification technology that “takes wood waste material and [produces] clean burning synthetic gas or syngas,” Scott said. ...

  • Study of the performance and exhaust emissions of a spark-ignited engine operating on syngas fuel

    To resolve the problem of depletion of petroleum based liquid fuels, various solutions have been proposed. One of them is the use of gaseous fuels that are generated from the gasification of woods, namely syngas or wood-gas fuels, as full supplement fuels in spark ignition internal combustion (IC) engines. This fuel consists of nearly 40% combustible gases, mainly hydrogen and carbon monoxide ...

  • Co-gasification of wood and polyethylene with the aim of CO and H2 production

    This article describes the gasification of polyethylene–wood mixtures to form syngas (H2 and CO) with the aim of feedstock recycling via direct fermentation of syngas to ethanol. The aim was to determine the effects of four process parameters on process properties that give insight into the efficiency of gasification in general, and particularly into the optimum gasification conditions for the ...

  • Hydrogen-rich synthesis gas production from waste wood via gasification and reforming technology for fuel cell application

    The purpose of this study was to establish a fuel process for an advanced power generation system in which hydrogen-rich synthesis gas, as the fuel for the molten carbonate fuel cell (MCFC), can be extracted from biomass via gasification and reforming technologies. Experiments on waste wood gasification were performed using a bench-scale gasification system. The main factors influencing hydrogen ...

  • Research on gasification process of loose biomass material with oxygen-enriched air in fluidised bed gasifier

    Fluidised bed gasification technology with oxygen-enriched air suitable for gasifying loose biomass materials was developed. Gasification experiments with different biomass materials such as rice straw, rice hull, wheat straw, sawdust and municipal wastes, were carried out. The tests showed that biomass materials can be gasified continuously at a temperature between 600 and 750°C. The heating ...
