Salient Features / Relevant Data:
conversion efficiency of 70 - 80% from
solid biomass to gaseous fuel.
Kilogram of Biomass produces around 2.5
to 3.0 cubic meters of gas having a calorific
value of 1000 - 1100 kilocalories per
Liter of liquid fuels (diesel / gasoline)
can be saved with only 3 to 4 kilograms
clean and complete combustion of gas due
high hydrogen content.
turn down ratio.
environmental impact through saving of
biomass in mot cases.
impact on global climate i.e. reduced
threat of global warming.
While unit cost of energy / power production
using “ BG- Ank” gasifier system depends on
number of situation - specific parameters (i.e.
prevailing feedstock’s prices, likely hours
of operation etc.), it is generally seen to
be one of the most economic alternatives because
of the following basic consideration:
Capital intensity of the equipment is just about
the lowest (except for 100% gasoline / diesel
based generation). For example, 100kW power
generation system has an installed cost of only
around $320 per kW - much lower than the installed
cost per kW of a 200 MW thermal power plant!!
Specific fuel consumption are very low - less
than 100 c.c. of diesel / gasoline and 1 kg
of biomass per kWHr of electrical output !!
The above data can indeed be used to estimate
the unit cost of generation though site-specific
economic calculations can only be provided on
request on case-to-case basis.
