Topic

According to studies, the feedstock straw has significant potential for the energy use of biomass. In order to put the theoretical possibilities to practical use, the development of suitable process and plant technology is still urgently needed. For this reason, the project focuses on the production of straw pellets and their use by means of gasification. As a comparable research has not yet been described, the approaches to optimize the gasifier and for quality assurance of the straw pellets are new and innovative.

Aim

  • Development of adequate procedures and plant technology for gasification of straw
  • Production of straw pellets and gasification of this pellets
  • Optimization of the gasifier and quality assurance of the straw pellets

Focus

DBFZ

Tests on the influence of mechanical (shredding and sieving), mechanical-physical (washing and dissolving, adding) and thermo-chemial (torfection) procedures on the compostion and the behaviour of the fuels gasifiers

Entrade

Validation of the results in large-scale production
