Research Thesis Topic
Development of Novel Gasification Technology for the Grain Industry
Gasification is a distributed technology which converts biomass (eg, grain waste) into bioenergy as well as biochar under the influence of temperature with limited oxygen. The purpose of this project is to evaluate and further develop this technology for agricultural applications in Australia. Small-scale lab experiments will be carried out to characterize the properties of the feedstock. Numerical methods will also be applied to understand how the design and operating factors influence the performance of the energy systems being considered. The technology developed in this project has the potential to offer major value-adding opportunities for the grain industry in Australia.
