dc.description.abstractIn the present study, in situ removal of ammonia (NH₃) and hydrogen sulphide (H₂S) in the producer gas has been investigated for steam gasification of woody biomass in a 100 kW dual fluidised bed (DFB) gasifier. The removal measures consist of optimisation of operation conditions and application of catalytic bed materials. The operation conditions investigated were gasification temperature in a range of 750 to 850 °C, steam to fuel ratio from 0.6 to 1.4 kg/kgdry, and mean gas residence time from 0.19 to 0.25 s. The catalytic bed materials tested included silica, ilmenite and calcined olivine sands which were applied in the DFB steam gasifier. The concentrations of NH₃ and H₂S in the producer gas were measured and the conversions of fuel nitrogen (N) and sulphur (S) to form NH₃ and H₃S were calculated based on the experimental results. The results showed that NH₃ and H₂S concentrations and conversions increased with the gasification temperature and the steam to fuel ratio. However, with increase in the mean gas residence time, the NH₃ concentration and conversion increased whereas the H₂S concentration and conversion slightly decreased. In addition, ilmenite sand and calcined olivine sand as the bed materials showed stronger influence on reduction of NH₃ and H₂S concentrations as well as fuel-N and fuel-S conversions in comparison with silica sand.-
