The pilot-scale moving bed reactor is designed to perform large scale tests on gasification of solid fuels at temperatures up to 1200ºC and under pressure up to 3 MPa. It gives the possibility to test the gasification process and in-situ CO2 capture process at larger scale, thus reducing possible scale-effects. Gaseous media like air, oxygen, and CO2 may be applied.
The installation is intended to be applied in large scale gasification tests contributing to the development of zero emission coal processing technology in energy applications. The dedicated research area covered includes fossil fuels gasification optimization, in particularly CO2 capture.
