What is Biomass Gasification?

Biomass gasification refers to the gasification of biomass, usually solid biomass, into an organic mixture of gases called the producer gas.

Such gasification takes place in an equipment called the gasifier. The biomass first goes through a drying process when all moisture is vaporised, then it goes through a process called pyrolysis when most biomass is converted into charcoal, and the third stage of the process is the gasification when the biomass gets converted into producer gas,

The producer gas thus produced could be used for heating purposes or in a gas engine to generate electricity.
