The fixed bed reactor installations offers the possibility to perform experimental studies on thermochemical conversion of solid fuels at the operating conditions of the temperature of up to 900ºC and pressure up to 5 MPa in the fixed-bed reactor of 0.8 L volume. The processes of thermochemical conversion of solid fuels including combustion, gasification and pyrolysis can be performed. The application of wide range of gaseous media (air, oxygen, steam, carbon dioxide and their mixtures) is possible. Gas composition is measured on-line with a gas chromatograph Agilent 3000A being the component of the installation.
The FBR installation gives opportunities to perform studies in the field of clean coal technologies, including fossil fuels, biomass and waste gasification, combustion and pyrolysis, with the emphasis put on various aspects of process optimization, including CO2 emission reduction by application e.g. of various feeding materials (including fuel blends of fossil fuels and biomass/waste) and CO2 capture with applications of various sorbents. The process parameters are automatically controlled and gas composition data is automatically acquired and
Laboratories of environment monitoring and solid fuels quality assessment.
