Thermochemical Fuel Conversion


The energetically and ecologically efficient use of both biogenic and fossil energy resources in energy conversion processes with high efficiencies, wide ranges of fuels, as well as large load and product flexibility is possible through the thermochemical processing of fuel. At EBI-ceb the basics of pyrolysis and gasification of solid and liquid fuels are developed based on experimental data and process modelling. One of the main focal points is the gasification of biomass based fuel suspensions under entrained flow conditions at high pressures.
