The use of biomass syngas in IC engines and CCGT plants: A comparative analysis

By M. Baratieri, P. Baggio, B. Bosio, M. Grigiante and G.A. Longo


This paper studies the use of biomass syngas, obtained from pyrolysis or gasification, in traditional energy-production systems, specifically internal combustion (IC) engines and combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants. The biomass conversion stage has been simulated by means of a gas–solid thermodynamic model. The IC and CCGT plant configurations were optimised to maximise heat and power production. Several types of biomass feedstock were studied to assess their potential for energy production and their effect on the environment. This system was also compared with the coupling between biomass gasification and fuel cells
