Co-Gasification of Refuse Derived Fuel and Wood Chips in the Nong Bua Dual Fluidised Bed Gasification Power Plant in Thailand (2022)
Co-gasification of refuse derived fuel (RDF) and wood chips was experimented in the Nong Bua dual fluidised bed steam gasifier in Thailand. The effect of the mass of RDF pellets in the feed fuel (R/F ratio) was investigated on the performance of the entire process conditions and the product gas properties. The test results showed that the addition of small mass ratio of RDF pellets up to 30% did not affect the process operation conditions. The concentrations of H2, CO, CO2, and CH4 from a binary mixture of RDF pellets and wood chips were in the same ranges as that from pure wood chips. The lower heating value of the product gas was as high as 13.2–13.6 MJ/Nm3 for all the R/F ratio fuels. It is concluded that binary mixtures of RDF pellets and wood chips with the mass percent of R/F ratio of 10–30% are good feedstocks in the Nong Bua dual fluidised bed gasification process. The tar content, however, from the binary mixtures of RDF pellets and wood chips was higher than that of pure wood chips. The tar must be completely removed before the product gas of the RDF pellets can be utilised in the gas engine.
