Factors Influencing the Formation of Producer gas from Coal and Biomass; A Review
Keywords:cogasification, producer gas, circulating fluidized bed, gasification
Rapid growth in world population and improved standard of life has demanded globally to increase the fossil fuel utilization, so as to meet their energy demand. Even though, the use of these resources associated with numerous environmental and technical issues. However, availability of diversify biomass resources have made them another attractive source of energy to reduce the polluting effect of fossil fuels using innovative technology of fluidized bed gasification. Circulating fluidized bed gasification is considered as a key technique for the production of energy from a variety of low rank coal and biomasses. The products of the co-gasification process are combustible gases; mainly CO, H2 and CH4 along with CO2, N2 (air gasification) and small traces of tar. The quality and quantity of gases produced depends on the operating parameters and type of gasifier. In term of overall electrical efficiency, the advantages of gasification route are higher as compared to direct combustion of the fuels.
