Objective

In the 1970's and 1980's the developments of fluidised bed gasification technologies stopped at pilot/demonstration scale for economic reasons but it grew the interest in its use with biomass for many reasons (fuel flexibility, wide range operation scales suitability, do not require fine grinding difficult with biomass).

In this project the way to overcoming the potential disadvantages of fluidised bed gasification and its use to process biomass/waste together with coal (at different operation scales and applications) and the technology for CO2 capture/reduction will be investigated. The effects of different fuels, composition and gasification medium on the quality of the producer gas will be also evaluated. Particular focus is on novel technologies for gasification coupled with CO2 sequestration and for producing hydrogen rich syngas from coal and biomass/waste.
