1. Feedstock System

The feedstock system includes equipment such as crushers, material stacking machines, material storage rooms, and automatic feeders. Its primary function is to preprocess biomass feedstock by breaking it down into sizes suitable for gasification in the subsequent processes. This system ensures that the feedstock is evenly distributed during the gasification process, maximizing gasification efficiency.

2. Gasification System

The core equipment in the gasification system is the updraft gasifier, which is the key component of the entire biomass gasification power generation system. Its primary function is to pyrolysis biomass and produce products such as syngas, biochar, and tar. This system’s high-temperature environment and specific atmospheric conditions facilitate the breakdown of biomass feedstock into gases that can be used for electricity generation.

3. Gas Purification System

The gas purification system is used to treat the gas-liquid mixture generated inside the pyrolysis furnace, removing impurities such as tar to produce clean synthesis gas (composed by CO, H2, CH4). This purified syngas is used as fuel to power the generator sets, ensuring efficient electricity production.

4. Power Generation System

The power generation system is the crucial component for converting biomass into electricity, utilizing internal combustion generator sets. These generator sets operate by combusting synthesis gas to drive generators and generate electrical power. The system boasts excellent power generation performance, with a maximum capacity of up to 3 megawatts (MW), meeting a variety of electricity demands.

5. Waste Heat Recovery System

The primary function of the waste heat utilization system is to recover the waste heat generated by the gasification and power generation systems, thereby enhancing the overall energy efficiency of the entire system. The recovered waste heat can be used for drying feedstock, producing hot water, or generating steam, leading to cost savings and improved overall system performance.

6. Automation Control System

The automation control system utilizes 5G intelligent management technology and is equipped with sensors and control devices installed throughout the system to enable real-time monitoring and control of the entire system. Users can access the system’s operation status at any time via their smartphones or PCs, ensuring the system operates safely and stably.

Biomass to Energy Process

biomass gasification power generation process

The basic principle of biomass gasification power generation technology is to convert biomass into combustible gas and then use the combustible gas to drive gas power generation equipment for electricity generation. This method not only addresses the shortcomings of biomass being difficult to burn and having a dispersed distribution but also fully leverages the advantages of compact equipment and low pollution associated with gas power generation technology. Therefore, it is one of the most efficient and clean methods for utilizing biomass energy.

The biomass gasification power generation process consists of three phases. Firstly, biomass gasification, which involves converting solid biomass into gaseous fuel. Secondly, gas purification is required because the gas produced through gasification contains impurities such as ash, coke, and tar. These impurities need to be removed through a purification system to ensure the normal operation of gas power generation equipment. Thirdly, gas power generation, which involves using gas turbines or gas internal combustion engines to generate electricity.To enhance power generation efficiency, a waste heat boiler and a steam turbine are also included in GEMCO biomass power generation process.
