Overview of European Biogas & Gasification Technologies – 2 Gasification

Download the document

The following document provides an overview of existing European gasification technologies and the main gasification processes.

After the introductory section on biomass conversion processes, the text follows the logic of the wood gas production process, progressing from the various gasifier technologies to feedstock specifics, storage, and necessary pre-treatment. Special, detailed chapters on issues of particular relevance for all gasification plants are included (e.g. on measurement, control and regulation technologies).

Due to the amount of existing information available on this topic, it may be the case that not everything is included or considered extensively. This document is intended as a solid starting point in learning about gasification. It cannot replace specialised training courses or professional planning. Some additional technologies and applications relevant for gasification have already been outlined in the document ‘Overview and Categorisation of European Biogas
Technologies focusing on Anaerobic Digestion’.

The detailed descriptions of certain technologies do not imply any preference for a specific technology, service provider or device. Similarly, pictures showing company names are included for visualisation purposes only and should not be seen as an endorsement of any specific company or technology.
