Supercritical Water Gasification of Biomass in a Ceramic Reactor : Long-Time Batch Experiments

  title={Supercritical Water Gasification of Biomass in a Ceramic Reactor : Long-Time Batch Experiments},
  author={Daniele Castello and Birgit Rolli and Andrea Kruse and Luca Fiori},
Supercritical water gasification (SCWG) is an emerging technology for the valorization of (wet) biomass into a valuable fuel gas composed of hydrogen and/or methane. The harsh temperature and pressure conditions involved in SCWG (T > 375 ◦C, p > 22 MPa) are definitely a challenge for the manufacturing of the reactors. Metal surfaces are indeed subject to corrosion under hydrothermal conditions, and expensive special alloys are needed to overcome such drawbacks. A ceramic reactor could be a… CONTINUE READING
