In Sweden and Cuba a variety of biomass have being investigated for energyconversion through termochemical processes into solid, liquids and gaseous products. Biomass gasification in fixed bed seem to be attractive option for the conversion ofagricultural and forest residues into gases suitable for use as alternative fuel in gasengines in rural areas, heat or electricity production.
This paper discusses the performance characteristics of a up - draft gasifier withBirch wood pellets. The bench scale gasifier was designed and built in the Royal Istitute of Technology, Sweden.
A series of parameters, such as the gas and liquids yields, temperatures and ash yield were measured as a function of the time.
