The technology for gasification of biomass and municipal solid waste (MSW) with minimal impact upon environment has been developed and investigated.

Financing: The Science and Technology Centre in Ukraine (STCU).

Main project parameters
  • Nominal capacity: 50 kW;
  • Fuel: wood residues, MSW, peat;
  • Composition of dry producer gas: СО — 29%, Н2 — 38%, СН4 — 7%, СО2 — 25%, other substances — up to 1%.
Main advantages

Producer gas with average heating value of 12-13 MJ/Nm3 is produced. The gas can be used as fuel including possibility of power production. Gasificstion and fine cleaning of producer gas allows to avoid dioxins formation.


The entire process is originally separated into two zones: gasification of biomass/MSW and combustion of charcoal. Inert material as a heat carrier circulates between two zones.
