Abstract

This book gives a broad overview of all technical aspects of gasification plants from biomass harvesting, pretreatment, conversion and product gas purification to product gas utilisation. It examines the environmental impact of gasifiers and their safety measures and summarises available data on gasifiers' performance. It also reviews the economics of gasification and the marketing strategy of penetrating existing and new markets, drawing conclusions concerning the technical performance, economic viability and current status of gasification plants. Finally, it outlines recommendations for future R&D and demonstration projects in the field.
