Jul 27, 2015 · World’s smallest biomass power plant using biomass gasification passes 1000 hours Entrade's E3 micro-scale biomass CHP plant produces 22 kW of electrical energy and 55 kW of thermal energy, and can be scaled up by connecting plants in series.
In brief, biomass gasification technology uses biomass as raw materials, oxygen, steam or hydrogen as agent, and turn the biomass into combustible gas through chemical reaction at high temperature. The combustible gas can be used in industrial and agriculture production, such as power generation, supplying heat, methanol and ethanol synthesis.
Gasification of wood and paper, as two types of common biomass feedstocks, is assessed using four gasification agents namely: air, oxygen-enriched air, oxygen and steam.
Strängnäs, Sweden. Babcock & Wilcox Vølund supplied the multi biofuel boiler for Strängnäs Energi AB. The energy produced by the boiler is to be used for high-efficiency electricity production, process steam for neighbouring industries and district heat heating for the town of Strängnäs.
Biomass gasification is a mature technology and the product gas has been used in boilers and furnaces for a long time. However, generating electricity from the gas by engines, turbines and fuel cells has not been possible until recently.
Biomass gasification is used to provide clean gaseous fuel for combustion in furnaces, boilers, and internal combustion engines for power generation and process heating. Biomass in the form of char is usually used rather than in its dried form because the producer gases are relatively free of tar, water, and corroding components.
Biomass gasification plants. PLANT FACT SHEET. Gasification of wood chips. Today gasification of biomass is an alternative to tra- ditional combustion plants as it is possible with this technology to generate more electricity than with the existing solutions based on steam in small district heating and industrial plants.
Biomass is a renewable energy source with an enormous potential to generate heat, power, and biofuels. It is, therefore, one of the extensively explored research areas in sustainable energy field.

A fixed bed of carbonaceous fuel (e.g. coal or biomass) through which the "gasification agent" (steam, oxygen and/or air) flows in counter-current configuration. The ash is either removed in the dry condition or as a slag.
