RENEWABLE FUELS FOR THERMAL GASIFICATION OF BIOMASS

S. SIVAKUMAR AND E. NATARAJAN

Abstract

This paper introduces the properties of biomass gasifiers and the gasifying reaction process. Biomass gasifiers use a proven principle which was first used during World War II to convert unused agricultural and forestry residues into a clean, high-quality gas. This gas can replace conventional energy sources, such as fuel oil, electricity and natural gas for crop drying, space heating, industrial boilers, and can be used directly to drive most internal combustion engines. The biomass gasifiers described here operate on various fuels usually considered unusable or low-value wastes, such as sawdust, wood chips, corn cobs, nut shells, rice hulls, etc. Gas produced by down-draft gasifiers is tar-free
