ExCo54 Workshop :Black Liquor Gasification. Summary and Conclusions.

Jan 2007

This publication provides the record of a workshop organised by IEA Bioenergy. Black liquor gasification is an interesting option for production of synthesis gas that can subsequently be converted to a variety of motor fuels. The technology can be integrated into modern, ecocyclic, kraft pulp mill biorefineries. USA and Sweden lead developments in this field. It is of interest primarily among countries with strong pulp and paper industries and national policies which promote substitution of petrol and diesel by biofuels.
