Catalytic combustion of gasified biomass in a platinum monolith honeycomb reactor

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Catalytic combustion of gasified biomass is becoming one of the important clean energy resources. To perform a systematic analysis, the characteristics of catalytic ignition and reaction of single and multi fuels including simulated gasified biomass were studied in a Pt monolith honeycomb reactor. A two-dimensional channel flow code with multi-step gas-phase and surface reaction mechanisms was used to clarify the detailed interaction mechanism of the main species of the gasified biomass on the surface. The simulated biomass was composed of 23% H2, 42% CO, and 35% CH4. For gasified biomass, the preheat temperature needed for light-off was determined by CO, since CO has the largest adsorption probability on Pt surface. Original is an abstract.
