A PYROLYSER - COMBUSTOR SYSTEM FOR MEDIUM BTU GAS GENERATION.

Objective

A COMPACT, SIMPLE AND RELIABLE COMBUSTOR-GASIFIER SYSTEM HAS BEEN DEVELOPED UNDER A PREVIOUS EEC CONTRACT (ESE-R-087-B). VERY HIGH AND STABLE SOLID CIRCULATION RATES HAVE BEEN OBTAINED (1000 KG/S M2) BETWEEN THE CELLS. BIOMASS PELLETS HAVE BEEN USED SUCCESSFULLY AS A FUEL. HOWEVER THE GAS MIXING BETWEEN THE CELLS RANGE BETWEEN 20 AND 40%. IT IS THE GOAL OF THE PRESENT PROJECT TO REDUCE THIS GAS TRANSFER WHILE THE SOLID FLUX WILL REMAIN HIGH.
ANOTHER GOAL OF THE PROJECT IS TO INCREASE THE FLEXIBILITY OF THE SYSTEM VERSUS SEVERAL DOWNSTREAM PROCESSES LIKE A DUAL FUEL DIESEL ENGINE, CHEMICAL SYSNTHESIS PROCESSES,..., BY USING CATALYSTS OR BY TRYING OPERATION UNDER PRESSURE.
