A Novel Biomass Gasifier for Producing Tar-Free and Hydrogen-Rich Syngas
Hydrogen from biomass gasification is reviewed as one of the promising clean energies approaches in the future for fuel cell. However, the syngas from biomass gasification usually contains a certain amount of tar, which could not only decrease the efficiency of gasification process and hydrogen production, but also condense as a dense mixture and impose a series of serious problems. So “Excess Enthalpy Gasification (EEG)” is put forward and applied into biomass gasification and a novel biomass gasifier is presented for the purpose of tar-free and hydrogen-rich syngas in this work. The structure characteristic of the gasifier and tar conversion characteristic are analyzed detailedly to prove the feasibility and excellence performance for producing tar-free and hydrogen-rich syngas from biomass gasification.
