Biomass. Incineration, Pyrolysis, Combustion and Gasification

Abdelmalik M. Shakorfow


Abstract: In this paper, biomass and its important properties most relevant to biomass gasification are discussed. To generate heat and/or electricity while save the environment, incineration, pyrolysis, combustion and gasification processes have all been tested mainly exploiting biomass. It is aimed in this paper, to discuss these processes with more attention on gasification process being the most efficient and economical process for hydrogen generation. It was found that biomass is a good candidate for gasification process although it has not been utilized enough. Gasification process in comparison to incineration, pyrolysis, combustion processes is the most practical while economical process if hydrogen production and protection of the environment are the main targets.
