    High flow control for gasification

    Gasification is a process in which biomass or fossil fuel is converted into carbon monoxide, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide (syngas or synthetic gas).1 According to Carnot’s theorem of thermodynamic efficiency, the syngas produced is more energy rich than organic fuel in its combustion due to higher combustion temperatures. Furthermore, syngas can be used directly in […]
