Abstract

All this time, PT Natcham’s gasifier only be used for synthetic gas production as
fuel of 400 kW gas engine power generation for the mushroom industry’s
electricity needs while energy crisis. From now on, the application and
development of biomass gasification technology is focused on synthetic gas
production to be processed furthermore from gas to liquid (GTL) through
Fischer–Tropsch synthesis process. H2+CO contained in syngas product is low
(average 20% of total producer gas) with H2/CO ratio = 0.30–0,35. Produced
synthetic gas composition more and less equal to the design maker of Peako –
China that is feasible to be utilized as fuel for 400 kW gas engine power
generation, but not meet yet specification requirements of syngas composition as
gas feeding for Fischer–Tropsch synthesis process (Gas–To–Liquid, GTL).
Installation of O2 and steam injection system inside gasifier necessary to improve
syngas quality, all at once N2 content decreasing in the syngas, with the result of
H2/CO ratio >1 that will improve liquid product.
