1kg of woody biomass converts into 2.0 to 3.0 Nm3 of gas with a calorific value above 1,100Kcal/NM3.
Ankur systems are clean, easy to operate and maintain, and require less water and space than other technologies. A standardised solution can be installed easily and quickly, with a flexible, modular design that can be upscaled as needed.
Gas coming out of the gasifier is usually 450°c or higher and generally contains little or no tar, with a small amount of ash and soot. Depending on the application, the temperature may need to be reduced. This is done by a state-of-the-art dry gas cleaning system, based around a heat exchanger, specially developed by Ankur. With no need for process water, no forced pressure or steam and with negative pressure, the system is safe to operate and environmentally friendly. The Syngas is now ready for use in an engine genset, gas turbine or boiler.
