Catalytic Tar Reforming for Cleanup and Conditioning of Biomass-derived Syngas

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Biomass gasification is being investigated to produce clean syngas from biomass or biorefinery residues as an intermediate that can be used directly as a fuel for integrated heat and power production or further refined and upgraded by various processing technologies. Conditioning of biomass-derived syngas, with an emphasis on tar reforming, to make it a suitable feed for high temperature,pressurized liquid fuels synthesis is the goal of current research efforts.
