The Swedish government has the goal of achieving a fossil-independent vehicle fleet by the year 2030, which requires production of biofuels on a large scale. Current project contributes to this goal by the development and validation of a methodology to enable better tools for monitoring, controlling and optimization of the process. The gasification process yields several process streams, which contains both gas and tar components as well as particles, making it a challenge to perform comprehensive measurements of the yield from the gasifier. Conventional methodology used for measuring these process streams are developed for combustion and petrochemical processes and needs to be adapted or developed to enable the measurements required for this type of process. The aim of this project is to develop a methodology to facilitate continuous measurements with several different analysis instruments parallel to enable gathering of the data required for industrial scale gasifiers.
