Co-gasification of waste in a solar fluidized bed gasifier for hydrogen production

December 1st, 2021

R&D Focus Areas:
Biomass and waste conversion, Techno-economic evaluation

Lead Organisation:
University of Adelaide

Future Fuels CRC


Start date:
January 2021

Project summary description:
A key outcome of this project is the identification of the risks, challenges and economic benefits of using hybridised solar gasification for the production of hydrogen and hydrogen-based carriers from agricultural, wood processing and construction wastes. In addition to providing a technical and economical overview of using solar energy for conversion of waste biomass to valuable fuels, the conversion efficiency and performance of conventional, non-solar reactors will also be evaluated and compared.
