Understand Biomass Gasification and Basic Principles of Biomass Gasification


What is biomass gasification?

Biomass resources usually refer to terrestrial plants (wood, fuel wood, straw, etc.), aquatic plants, human and animal excrement, etc., which are mainly composed of lignin or cellulose and other organic matter. There are many varieties and large quantities. China’s annual output reaches more than 5 billion tons, among which the harvestable crop straw reaches more than 800 million tons. Biomass resources generally have three uses: energy, feed and fertilizer. Biomass energy is the earliest, most abundant, and most direct energy source used by humans. Up to now, more than 1.5 billion people in the world still use biomass as their living energy source.

Biomass energy is most likely to become one of the main energy sources in the 21st century. It is estimated that the energy stored by plants every year is approximately 10 times the world’s main fuel consumption, but its use as energy is less than 1% of the total. Experts believe that biomass energy will become an important part of sustainable energy in the future. By 2015, 40% of total global energy consumption will come from biomass resources.

The traditional utilization method of directly burning biomass not only has low thermal efficiency, but is also labor-intensive and polluting. Due to the improvement of living standards and changes in lifestyle, more and more farmers have switched to clean and efficient energy such as liquefied gas. A large amount of crop straw is discarded as waste or burned in the fields, which is a waste of resources and pollutes Environment; severe cases may also cause the closure of airports and highways. Therefore, it is necessary to develop, promote and apply new technologies to convert biomass energy into efficient and high-grade clean energy to replace fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas.


Biomass Gasification Gas Analyzer : Syngas Analyzer

Our Syngas Analyzers IR-GAS-600/600P is high-stability infrared detector for the simultaneous measurement of CO, H2, CO2, and CH4. These gases are suitable for challenging applications such as syngas and gasification atmospheres. In addition, analyzers may use a compensated thermal conductivity cell for H2. Electrochemical O2 sensors may also measure percent levels of oxygen in the sample gas stream.
