Abstract [en]

An extensive evaluation program was carried out within the European SECTOR project to evaluate the feasibility of torrefied and densified biomass in available entrained flow gasifiers. Different entrained flow reactors (both atmospheric and pressurized) in different scales, from lab scale to a 240 MW industrial gasifier were used for evaluation of torrefied materials as feedstock. Total behaviours of the new fuel throughout the whole supply chains and the EFG systems were evaluated and documented, including process behaviours in terms of operation, gas quality, products of incomplete gasification, etc. Results showed a significant improvement in fuel properties in terms of storage, logistics, milling and feeding behaviour by torrefaction and densification. Entrained flow gasification of the torrefied biomass was also shown to be feasible without any major showstoppers, even improving the gasification processes. Production of tars and other products of incomplete gasification were often found significantly reduced during gasification of torrefied material.
