Abstract

A reactor capable of improving the utilization of biomass-derived carbon during thermochemical conversion to synthesis gas is demonstrated experimentally. By co-processing hydrogen-deficient biomass (H/C∼2) with hydrogen-rich feedstocks (H/C≥4) through catalytic partial oxidation, 100% of the fuel carbon atoms fed to the reactor can be converted to CO.
