From 2007 to 2011 the company BTG and the universities of Eindhoven, Twente and Delft performed research related to biomass gasification and ensuing gas cleaning. The work was co-ordinated by ECN and funded by grants from the Dutch EOS-LT programme. Research was performed by 5 PhD students and staff of the parties involved. Subjects covered were bed materials in fluidised-bed gasifiers, fouling in gas heat exchangers, tar removal by plasma, flame-generated radicals or catalysts, gasification and reforming of pyrolysis oil to syngas, and self gasification of biomass at high temperature and pressure. Results have been reported in progress reports covering periods of one year each and in many contributions to symposia, conferences and scientific journals. The present report covers the whole period with emphasis on the final results.
