New Publication: Lessons learned about thermal biomass gasification

Date Oct 2019


This report is elaborated by IEA Bioenergy Task 33 (Thermal Gasification). IEA Bioenergy is following the gasifier technology since the 1970s, with the most available knowhow on research and demonstration projects. While larger scale flagship demonstration projects (mostly built for research and demonstration purpose, e.g. BTL or SNG plants) have received most attention, in reality, most of the already implemented biomass gasifiers are small-scale CHP plants. This report shows why there is a gap between implementation and the communicated success of this technology. What lessons can we learn from past activities and what does it mean for future thermal gasification projects, if they aim to be successful.
