Pyrolytic gasification is a thermochemical process through which a combustible gas mixture is extract from biomass.
The gas mixture (syngas) contains hydrogen, carbon monoxide and methane, the process produce a solid waste (biochar) containing over 90% of carbon and which is an excellent soil improver.
Internally developed Downdraft Open Core micro-gasifier:
Burner, as well as the whole system, works by sucked air from exhaust fan.
Depression generated in the combustion chamber let syngas and combustion air to flow in it.
External combustion Stirling engine is particularly suitable for micro-CHP application because is absolutely insensitive to the kind of combustible to be used, and compared with traditional internal combustion engines, has lower noise emission, lower vibrations and higher efficiency in very low output power range.
External combustion let also to optimize fuel oxidation and obtain low pollutant and particulate matter emission.
1.0 kW free piston Stirling engine.
AC electrical power output suitable for both grid connection and island/hybrid installations.
