Abstract

Publishable report of project JOR3-CT98-0291.

The objective of this project was to enhance the technical and economical viability of small and medium sized decentralized biomass CHP units basing on the combination of gasification technology and gas engines which are designed for rural areas in Europe and developing countries. The project was designed for a clear assessment of two different gasification technologies against a wide spectrum of operating conditions. Three different kinds of biomass were considered. Main goal of the project was to minimize the impurities of the gas in order to receive a suitable gas for a gas engine. Furthermore, a robust gas engine was designed and adapted for direct utilization of the biomass fuel gas generated.

The project was divided into three work packages:

- Gas quality optimization;
- Gasifier component optimization;
- Gas engine optimization;
