Circulating fluidized bed gasification of solid recovered fuels - Results from gasification and gas filtration tests

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Fluidized bed gasification technology offers an attractive way to use inhomogeneous biomass residues and various waste-derived feedstocks in power and heat production as well as in various circular economy concepts based on the synthesis gas route. A fluidized bed gasification process development (PDU) plant of 200 kW capacity was operated with Solid Recovered Fuels (SRFs) and demolition wood. In part of the tests carried out with SRF, deposits were formed in the gas lines, and the pressure drop of the filter increased as well. However, optimal combination of gasification, gas cooling and filtration conditions were found to achieve a stable pressure drop, avoid deposit formation and to achieve efficient removal of gas contaminants. The effects of the operating conditions on the achieved carbon conversion and formation of tars and other gas contaminants were studied. The produced gas was filtered at 370-500 °C using two alternative filtration systems applying ceramic bag filters or ceramic fiber filters. The removal efficiency of waste-derived trace metals and chlorine was determined at different filtration temperatures.
