New biomass gasification demonstration plant gets state support  

2009.12.01
A consortium led by DONG Energy will commence a four year project to build a biomass gasification plant at DONG Energy's Asnæs Power Station
With DKK 35m (USD 7m) in public funding, a consortium led by Danish energy concern DONG Energy will commence a four year project with an overall budget of DKK 90.7m (USD 18.m) to build a biomass gasification plant at DONG Energy's Asnæs Power Station near Kalundborg on Zealand, reports professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer).
 
The public funding comes respectively from the Danish ForskEL (DKK 24m) and ForskVE (DKK 11m) programmes.
 
The type of gasification technology that will be used is called "Low temperature fluidized bed", which has certain advantages over direct combustion of biomass in a boiler. The corrosive ash which biomass tends to produce in ordinary boilers can be avoided using low temperature gasification, which can also be used with other forms of biomass that are not suitable for incineration in a boiler.
 
The choice of the gasification technology has been based on three different test gasification plants set up at the Technical University of Denmark. The Asnæs demonstration plant will have an output of 6 MWth and will in the longer term be used as the basis for a full scale plant of 50-100 MWth capacity.
