Gasification (biomass gasification)

Biomass gasification is the thermal conversion process of biomass into a gas, by bio-gasification or thermal gasification, where solid fuel is transformed into a fuel gas (producer gas) with a gasifying agent (air, steam, etc.). In the latter, hydrogen is produced from high-temperature gasifying and low-temperature pyrolysis of biomass. The produced gas is normally a mixture of N2, H2, CO, CO2, H2O, CH4 and light hydrocarbons whose use in advanced applications is hindered by the presence of contaminants such as tar, ammonia and particulates.
