Wood gasification process is one of the main steps in the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology also known as cogeneration. This technology is a smart process of obtaining simultaneously both electricity and heat. Normally, in the process of energy generation, a lot of heat is produced which is discarded in the environment. When using cogeneration, the heat is captured and made use of. Thus, the waste is minimal and both produced energies qualify as clean and nonconventional.
Briefly, installations for wood gasification use four main components:
- Fuel (mainly wood waste discarded by wood product manufacturers )
- Installation which turns wood into gas
- Installation which turns gas intro electricity
- Installation that captures the heat and makes it usable
