Biomass Gasification: Techno-Economic Analysis

What is Gasification TEA? Biomass gasification refers to the thermal deconstruction of woody or herbaceous feedstock to syngas (CO/H2). The syngas is subsequently converted to value-added products like methanol or dimethyl ether. Techno-economic analysis (TEA) is the combination of conceptual process design and production cost estimation activities. Gasification TEA is generally carried out by a…

Gasification Technologies

In gasification technology selection, a necessary initial step is to narrow the search down to a smaller subset of gasification technologies that best match the application and have achieved the necessary technology readiness level (TRL).  Project scale, feedstock(s), and end product(s) are the most important aspects of the gasification application to first consider in the…

Biomass Gasification Expert

Biomass gasification is the process of turning some variety of biomass into higher-value products. This is most often done by converting a material containing carbon (like coal, biomass, waste, petroleum coke, etc.) —into syngas. This syngas is then burned to produce electricity, or it is further processed to manufacture chemicals, fertilizers, liquid fuels, substitute natural…
