Gasification is a thermochemical process by which low energy density fuels like biomass can be converted into gaseous fuels with the aid of a series of chemical reactions.
Biomass gasification being a complex process, its theoretical modeling
The assumptions used to formulate the biomass gasification process are as follows.
5 proportions by weight [24, 25] and its yield can be obtained as a weight percentage of the total gasification products using the following :
2006) and gasification characteristics of waste tires powders were described (Leung and Wang, 2003).
The aim of this study is to determine the amount of waste rubber acceptable for its thermal treatment with brown coal by the steam-oxygen gasification in a moving bed in laboratory and industrial scales.
Firstly, co-gasification of rubber with brown coal was carried out under well-defined conditions of gasification in a laboratory scale at a unit for the conversion of solid fuels at atmospheric pressure designed for the gasification of samples of a maximum weight of 100 g, capable of heating to a temperature of up to 900[degrees]C and collecting gaseous products into a gas holder with a capacity of 130 [dm.
In the course of gasification, volatile products were being exhausted into the separator with a cooling circuit with ethanol (-10[degrees]C).
that enables Eastman to provide operation, maintenance, management and technical services, as well as parts fabrication and sales for gasification plants of Texaco Development licensees.
We're excited about the opportunities that this agreement will provide Eastman to operate and maintain gasification facilities for other companies," said Brian Ferguson, Eastman's chairman and CEO.
Eastman's gasification services are designed to help customers achieve a faster start-up to capacity, maximize plant value and improve long-term performance," Ferguson said.
In 1983, under a license from Texaco Development, Eastman launched the first commercial gasification facility in the United States that used coal as a raw material to produce industrial chemicals.
