Biomass syngas is typically produced by pyrolysis or gasification of carbonaceous materials. The reaction takes place at high temperatures of 750-1300 °C in an environment with controlled oxygen input. The overall gasification power plant system consist of the following key components: gasifier unit, gas cleaning system and CHP gas generators.
Applicable to a wide range of biomass feedstocks:
- Woody biomass: clean wood waste, contaminated wood, creosoted wood, sawdust and peat
- Agro residues: straw, rice husk, etc
This clean burning syngas is a valuable energy product that can be used for combined heat and power generation. The use of syngas as a natural gas replacement is possible in specific biomass syngas generators, which are specifically designed to utilise gas with low calorific value.
