Analysis of biomass chars thermal decomposition: Experimental tests and modelling in N2 and CO2 atmosphere
(ETA Florence, 2017)
Char is a by-product of biomass gasification; nonetheless, it can be valorized in several ways, for wastewater treatment, for instance, or as bio-fertilizer. Char has also been observed to have a high potential for catalytic ...
Possible utilization pathways of char from biomass thermochemical conversion: Char as a catalytic filtering medium for tar cracking
(ETA-Florence Renewable Energies, 2016)
This work investigates the potential of char as catalytic filtering medium for gasification tar cracking. As a first step, chars from representative small-scale gasification plants installed in South-Tyrol (Italy), have ...
Experimental and Modelling Analysis of Char Decomposition: Experiences with Real Scale Gasification Systems
The main issue to be faced when dealing with gasification processes is the removal of tars in order to obtain a good quality producer gas for later use, either as energy vector or for production of chemicals. Char has been ...
