Conversion of forest residues to clean gas for fuel or synthesis

Conversion of forest residues to clean gas for fuel or synthesis

Tappi 63(5): 83-87

Two developments are described that may reduce the cost of gas from forest residues or other biomass. The first is based on the finding that wood ash itself enhances the gasification reactivity of wood. The second is the application of a reactor system that allows a wide range of forest residues (from sawdust to wood chips) to be gasified at high throughput rates without preprocessing such as grinding or pelletizing.
