Biomass Gasifier Burner

Biomasse Vergaser

Biomass gasification burner for a Stirling CHP

Energy Technology Programme (ETP), Term 2018–2020

With the launching of the project in 10/2018, an exciting research project was initiated, which was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the State of Upper Austria.

It was a compact wood carburettor burner for pellets and wood chips, which is to be used for supplying heat to the alphagamma® Stirling engines.

Since Stirling engines can feed the hot wood gas directly into the combustion process, it was to be expected that the process steps of gas cooling and tar condensation would be superfluous.

As a result, the system effort and the maintenance costs of the wood gas CHP should be significantly reduced.
