Gasification of novel moisture-resistant fuel pellets to synthesis gas and comparison of their performance to those with commercial Power Pellets™

The proposed research deals with the gasification of novel moisture-resistant fuel pellets (developed previously in Dr. Dalai’s Lab) to synthesis gas. For this purpose the gasification process parameter will be optimized to maximize the conversion. Then the results will be scaled-up in a continuous pilot scale gasifier. These results will be compared to those with the commercial one. At the end, the technoeconomic analysis of the process will be analyzed. The partner organization will be benefitted from exploring the commercial feasibility of novel moisture resistant pellets.
