Full Paper(PDF, 425KB)
Abstract:
An Experimental study on biomass gasifier for burner system is presented in this paper. Biomass gasifier is developed and An Experimental study on biomass gasifier for burner system is presented in this paper. Biomass gasifier is developed and tested by using coconut shell as fuel for producing bio-gas. The generated bio-gas is directly used in burner system for combustion process and heating applications. The activated carbon is a waste product in this process, which is highly in demand for water purification system and can, sold to neutralize the fuel cost. In this work a Biomass Gasifier is designed, fabricated and commissioned to get biogas with carbon monoxide & carbon dioxide.
