Using biomass gasification for small scale power generation systems: specifications of the conceptual framework Conference Paper uri icon


  • The development of small-scale power generation units based on biomass gasification is an effective mean to meet the growth interest of deployment of local power generation exploiting endogenous renewable energy sources. However, significant research and development activities are required towards the deployment of cost-effective solutions suitable to be used in several applications and with different biomass feedstock. For this purpose, a flexible experimental setup is required to be developed. This paper proposes a critical review of the current state of the art of the available technologies suitable for small-scale power generation using biomass gasification. The main guidelines to develop cost-effective solutions are identified and the conceptual framework of the experimental setup is proposed. Also, the operational specifications are presented.
