Thermodynamic Analysis of Supercritical Water Gasification of Microalgae Biomass for Hydrogen and Syngas Production

  title={Thermodynamic Analysis of Supercritical Water Gasification of Microalgae Biomass for Hydrogen and Syngas Production},
  author={Antonio Carlos de Freitas and Reginaldo Guirardello},
Supercritical water gasification (SCWG) is an alternative thermochemical technology for the conversion of wet biomass in a high heat value product gases, such as syngas and hydrogen. Algal biomass has been suggested as one promising option to produce biomass for use as fuels and chemical feedstocks with high area-specific yields. In this study, the thermodynamic analysis of SCWG of microalgae biomass (C. vulgaris and Spirulina Sp.) for hydrogen and syngas production was presented. The effects… CONTINUE READING
