Biomass-gasification and fuel-cell coupling via high-temperature gas clean-up for decentralised electricity generation with improved efficiency (CLEAN ENERGY FROM BIOMASS)

Objective

The project is aimed at studying, developing and testing the integration of Biomass Gasification and Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell for distributed power generation. The research activities include the assembly and operation of a pilot plant (made of an internally-circulating, catalytic fluidised-bed gasifier, a novel hot gas clean-up system and a 125 kWe MCFC) and an ancillary work programme in key areas, which includes cold modelling of the gasifier, detailed simulation of the overall system and catalyst upgrading. The programme is addressed at fully assess the technical feasibility of economically viable units for wide scale industrial applications in the short/medium term.
