Gasification

Gasification systems for power and heat generation use high temperatures and a substoichiometric oxygen environment to convert biomass into syngas. Oxygen enrichment of the biomass gasifier can provide the following benefits:

  • Produces syngas with higher heating value due to reduced nitrogen dilution
  • Reduces gasifier and downstream equipment size leading to lower capital costs
  • May improve carbon conversion efficiency in the gasifier and combustion efficiency in the power generation device

Our engineering specialists can help you select the appropriate oxygen system for your application. To find out more, contact us at the office nearest your location.

Oxygen

Oxygen-enhanced gasification can produce syngas with higher heating value due to reduced nitrogen dilution. It can also reduce gasifier and downstream equipment size. Oxygen may also improve the chemical conversion rate of the syngas in downstream catalytic processes and it may improve carbon conversion efficiency in the gasifier.
