We have established the suitability, or otherwise, of a wide range of New Zealand coals for the new advanced clean coal gasification technologies being demonstrated and commercialised internationally.
These technologies are at the heart of many of the new high efficiency electricity generation processes. It was found that many of our coals are well suited to low-temperature fluidised-bed gasification.
The research on fluidised-bed gasification also showed a propensity toward good yields of hydrogen in the product gas.
In our 200kW gasifier we can ascertain the performance of your coal or coal-biomass mix and with our dedicated GC the syngas composition can be monitored online in real time.
The gasifier gas cleaning system is designed to test various catalysts using a real syngas.
