A Report on the Initial Gasification Trials
The aim of this ARENA project is to scale up an advanced biomass gasification technology to 100 kg/hr biomass processing capacity. A 100 kg/hr biomass gasification demonstration plant has been designed, built and commissioned. Some initial trials have now been carried out using this demonstration plant for the gasification of mallee and other biomasses. The results from these initial trials are highlighted below. These initial results have proved the overall technical feasibility of this advanced gasification technology.
Some Key Features of Biofuels from the Pyrolysis and Biorefinery of Biomass - A Preliminary Report
This project aims to demonstrate a low emission biofuel technology for the production of high quality liquid fuels and biochar from the pyrolysis of biomass and the subsequent biorefinery of the bio-oil. There is currently a lack of understanding about the properties of such biofuels (not to be confused with biodiesels) from the pyrolysis-biorefinery of lignocellulosic biomass. Therefore, a significant roadblock in the establishment of an Australian biofuel industry is the lack of confidence, which does not favour commercial investment in this area.
