Improvement of producer gas quality by steam injection in gasification process: A review


Owing to the increasing requirements of fossil fuel for electricity generation, it is necessary to move to another alternative fuel sources. Gasification is one such process which uses carbonaceous feedstocks such as biomass, agriculture waste, industrial waste, etc as input. This technology is ideal for offgrid electricity and may helpful in rural electrification. Inspite of very old technology, several challenges are facing with this sytem mainly contaminents in producer gas such as tar, particulates, dust, soot etc. Higher the hydrogen content and lower the tar content are expected in producer gas, Steam gasification is one of the effective technoque which can fulfill these requirements. Different fuels and gasifier system are compared and analyzed for optimum conditions in order to obtain the maximum hydrogen content and minimum undesired products. Producer gas components and tar are the major parameters which are compared for various sytem.

Key Words
