Biomass Gasification and Liquid Fuel (BTL) Synthesis Using an Entrained-flow Type Gasifier in Japan
Tomoko OGI, Masakazu NAKANISHI
BTL is advocated to be widely introduced in near future (by 2030) by Japanese government. BTL synthesis is now R&D stage in Japan and its development is urgently required. We have been studying the gasification of biomass using an entrained-flow type gasifier and clarifying the suitable conditions for synthesizing liquid fuels in the joint researches with companies and universities organized by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) biomass projects, those are, methanol synthesis in a 2 ton/day scale test plant, bio-LPG synthesis and bio-jet fuel synthesis. We introduce and overview woody and herbaceous biomass gasification and BTL synthesis using an entrained-flow gasifier in Japan.
