Optimisation of burners for entrained flow gasifiers

Published: 17 January 2019

• A new technique to reduce soot inside the gasifier by acoustic forcing of the flow to enhance fuel particle dispersion
• This technique modifies local conditions at the location of soot formation without changing any major process parameters
• 90% reduction of soot volume fraction in lab scale experiments in an earlier project
• Application of the concept in technical scale with an aim for scale up
• Funding: Swedish Energy Agency (3.5 MSEK)
• Partners: LTU
• Duration: 2019-2021
