Biomass gasification for synthetic liquid fuel production

H. Yang; H. Chen    State Key Laboratory of Coal Combustion, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, PR China

Abstract

As the fourth energy resource, biomass is carbon neutral and renewable. Gasification is the most promising technology for converting biomass to high quality syngas (H2 and CO). This chapter first introduces the specialty of biomass materials, as well as the in situ status of biomass gasification with tar removal and char conversion. It then describes the novel development of biomass gasification technologies that reduce tar and produce high purity H2, such as staged gasification and CaO-based steam gasification. Simultaneously, the mathematical simulation ...
