A natural biomass was fed in a pilot scale bubbling fluidized bed gasifier, having a maximum feeding capacity of 100kg/h. Measurements included the syngas composition, the mass flow rate and composition of entrained fines collected at the cyclone and purge material from the wet scrubber, and the bed material characterization. The performance of the whole gasification plant and of its specific components as well as the validity of some design solutions and operating criteria have been quantitatively assessed by means of a substance flow analysis.
