Review of Technologies for Gasification of Biomass and Wastes 2009, produced by E4tech for NNFCC. There are several different generic types of gasification technology that have been demonstrated or developed for conversion of biomass feedstocks. Most of these have been developed and commercialised for the production of heat and power from the syngas, rather than liquid fuel production. The principal types shown in this report are: Updraft fixed bed; Downdraft fixed bed; Entrained flow; Bubbling fluidised bed; Circulating fluidised bed; dual fluidised bed; and Plasma.
