    Gasification Experiments and Studies


      Gasification is a chemical-heat process that converts energy materials like coal and biomass into gas: a mixture of carbon monoxide with hydrogen which is called syngas that is used as a clean fuel. Gasification is useful in Waste-to-Energy techniques.
