Abstract:

Due to fast climate change and foreseen damage through global warming, access to clean and green energy has become very much essential for the sustainable development of the society, globally. Biomass based energy is one of the important renewable energy resources to meet the day to day energy requirements and is as old as the human civilization. Biomass gasification is among few important aspects of bioenergy for producing heat, power and biofuels for useful applications. The gas from biomass gasifier contains quantities of particulates, tars, and other constituents that may exceed the specified limits which may hinder their safe usage in applications where tar free clean gas is required such as in automobile engines. To determine performance of pilot model updraft gasifier with use of wood chips, coconut husk, coconut shell and pressed sugar cane biomass solid fuels at used weight of 30Kg.
