Biomass Steam Reforming

Biomass Steam Reforming systems gasify biomass to form Syngas.

Biomass Steam Reforming systems gasify biomass to form Syngas.


Gasification is most simply thought of as choked combustion or incomplete combustion.

It is burning solid fuels like wood or coal without enough air to complete combustion, so the output gas still has combustion potential. The unburned gas is then piped away to burn elsewhere as needed.


Gasification is a process to convert organic or fossil fuel based carbonaceous material into carbon monoxide, hydrogen and carbon dioxide.

This is achieved by reacting the material at high temperatures (>750 C), without combustion in combination with a controlled amount of oxygen or steam. The resulting gas mixture is called syngas and is a fuel. The power derived from gasification and combustion of the resultant gas is considered to be a source of renewable energy.

Gasification is made up for five discrete thermal processes: Drying, Pyrolysis, Combustion, Cracking, and Reduction. All of these processes are naturally present in the flame you see burning off a match, though they mix in a manner that renders them invisible to eyes not yet initiated into the mysteries of gasification. Gasification is merely the technology to pull apart and isolate these separate processes, so that we might interrupt the “fire” and pipe the resulting gases elsewhere.


Renewable energy technologies are essential contributors to sustainable energy as they generally contribute to world energy security, reducing dependence on fossil fuel resources, and providing opportunities for mitigating greenhouse gases.

Conceptually, one can define three generations of renewables technologies, reaching back more than 100 years.

Biomass gasification technologies are considered Third-generation technologies.
