This study is focused on the effects of nitrogen content in biomass feedstock on the producer gas composition and the flue gas NOx emissions from a pilot-scale gasification and combustion system. Biomass gasification has the potential to produce carbon neutral energy by using renewable resources. When the biomass-derived gas is burned, NOx emissions are a critical factor that can limit the use of the system. In this study, tests were conducted in a pilot-scale fluidized-bed gasifier using… 
Effect of Woody Biomass Gasification Process Conditions on the Composition of the Producer Gas
Using woody biomass in thermochemical gasification can be a viable alternative for producing renewable energy. The type of biomass and the process parameters influence the producer gas composition
Generation of synthesis gas for fuels and chemicals production
Many scientists believe that the oil production will peak in the near future, if the peak has not already occurred. Peak oil theories and uncertain future oil deliveries have stimulated interest in
Numerical modeling of pollutant emissions in practical combustion systems using detailed chemical kinetics
Pollutant emissions from combustion systems are a major area of concern with today’s energy needs. Numerical simulations have helped with the design of clean and efficient combustion strategies over
Combustion of Low-Calorific Waste Biomass Syngas
The industrial combustion chamber designed for burning low-calorific syngas from gasification of waste biomass is presented. For two different gases derived from gasification of waste wood chips and
Investigation of biomass gasification and effects of ammonia on producer gas combustion
