Clever Combination: Hydrothermal Carbonisation Plus Biomass Gasification Enables Efficient Gas Utilisation with Residual and Waste Materials

Reduction of tar loading in biomass gasification with bio coals

Munich, February 06, 2017 - The decentralized use of residual materials for power and heat generation has been the focus of bioenergy research for years. In the FLUHKE project (FKZ 03KB074), a technology chain from hydrothermal carbonisation through entrained flow gasification to motor utilisation was developed and successfully tested on a pilot scale.
