Fluidized bed gasification pilot plant

This pilot plant consists of a fluidized bed reactor with a 15 kg/h processing capacity and all the necessary ancillary equipment. It can operate with continuous feeding of biomass and fluidizing agents.

The main difference exhibited by this installation against other lab-scale reactors for waste gasification is in addition to the different processing capacity, the autothermicity achieved inside the reactor along the experiments. This fact implies that once the operation has started up, the gasification maintains on its own with no need of any other external energy source. This important issue can be barely attained in a lab-scale reactor of lower capacity, allowing operating conditions very close to that found in commercial scale gasification plants, but with the flexibility offered by a small installation. The plant has been designed, built and currently is operated by the Thermochemical Processes Group (GPT).
