Abstract

Research and development into the gasification of solid fuels in Finland are focused on the utilization of indigenous fuels: peat and biomass. Development work is concentrated on the production of low-Btu gas. The Bioneer fixed-bed gasifier and the Pyroflow circulating fluidized-bed gasifier offer flexible and reliable operation coupled to boilers, dryers and lime kilns in the range 1–10 MW and 5–100 MW thermal effect, respectively.
