Abstract

Gasification research-and-development activities in Finland are focused on the development of simplified integrated gasification combined-cycle power plants based on air-blown gasification and hot-gas cleaning. This research is mainly concentrated on the utilization of peat and different wood wastes. Effective utilization of these fuels, which are the only indigenous fuels in Finland, is crucially important for the Finnish energy economy. Pressurized-fluidized-bed gasification of biofuels and hot-gas cleaning from tars, particulates, and alkali metals are extensively studied at the Technical Research Centre of Finland. A brief review of the current experimental gasification research is presented in this paper.
