Measurement, Analysis and Monitoring of Condensable Gas Components (especially Tar) in Product-Gases from Biomass Gasification and Pyrolysis


A workshop dealing with the analysis of gases from biomass gasification (and pyrolysis) processes was held on June 8th as side event of the EU Biomass Conference in Berlin. On this website you find the short presentations given by experts from several countries. They speakers were limited to short statements about the method applied, its current status of development, possible applications, the achieved results and their quality with respect to accuracy, repeatability and reproducibility.
