Abstract

Advanced gasification, the subject of this present book, was an important component in the European Community's R&D programme on Energy from Biomass. The Commission had issued a particular call for tenders and had selected four contractors in France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom for support. Later on, four complete full-sized pilot projects with a throughput of approximately 1 tonne of biomass per hour were built up and an energy rich synthesis gas was produced. Some of the gas could be successfully converted into methanol. It is important to note that all four projects proved eventually to be technically viable although at least two of them were based on completely new ideas and included high development risks. As a result, a set of new gasification technologies of a very high standard have become available in Europe. The pilot programme also included a few minor projects on the same subject which were exploratory. Here too interesting results were achieved which are presented in this book.
