Efficient use of biomass in black liquor gasification plants
Paper in proceedings, 2001

The use of biomass in black liquor gasification (BLG) plants was discussed. The configurations with a high electricity output and a high total efficiency based on pulp mills incoming biomass stream were identified. The excess available biofuel was assumed to be exported for use in a direct heating system that replaces natural gas that could be used in a high efficiency combined cycle power plant. The on-site biofuel usage should be limited to the amount needed for back-pressure steam production to cover the mill's heat load.
