Abstract

With the growing energy demands worldwide and environmental threats posed by use of conventional methods of generating energy which involves burning of coal (thermal power plant), the need arises for use of other sources of energy like biomass. Various energy crisis and technological advancements have influenced the development of gasifiers for different fuels, configurations and applications other than wood and charcoal. This paper reviews the reactions taking in biomass gasification reactor, the different design types available, optimization of various parameters affecting efficiency along with different types of materials which could possibly be used as biomass. Both experimental and numerical methods of testing like CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) are also studied in this paper.
