Via f3, ETC together with partners from KTH and Chalmers have compiled a synthesis report of technical barriers and current research issues on biomass gasification for deployment at large scale. The report covers the main challenges for three generic gasification concepts currently being considered in Sweden: direct Fluidised Bed Gasification (FBG), Entrained Flow Gasification (EFG) [...]
On the 5th International DME Conference in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA the standardization of DME as a fuel was discussed. Efforts to finalize an ISO standard are now in its final stages. ETC participates in this effort by funding from the Swedish Energy Agency, for example via Round Robin tests and expert inputs at international [...]
In the scientific journal “Energy & Fuels” a recent article by graduate student Fredrik Weiland as lead author describes the first results and experiences from the pressurized entrained flow biomass gasifier (PEBG). The focus in the study was to evaluate the performance of the gasifier for synthesis gas quality and mass and energy balances.
