WP 1: Pilot-scale development of the new gasification process

Feedstock basis of the gasification process

  • PDU and laboratory tests with selected agro-biomasses and waste-derived feedstocks
  • Pilot-tests with potential feedstocks and feedstock mixtures

Development of gas cleaning concept, validation of the whole gasification process

  • Hot filtration
  • Reforming of tars and hydrocarbon gases
  • Design of the bulk sulphur removal unit and testing, sorbent optimization R&D
  • Final gas cleaning and guard bed to be tested in slip stream
