Abstract | Full Text

The treatment of residual biomass for energy is a topic of interest for environmental conservation and energy efficiency. Within the advanced treatment technologies, hydrothermal processes have attracted considerable interest because of its efficacy in the destruction / disposal of waste discharges of high organic load. Is therefore the importance of modeling reactors which allow the gasification reaction, such as fluidized bed, bubbling bed, specifically through the weight percent of produced gas as the particle size of the biomass supplied in function of temperature, using as food pine sawdust (Pinus arizonica Engelm), comparing these results with those obtained experimentally. Was obtained that the increase in temperature increased the production of hydrogen and methane with an average percentage deviation of 1.69%. Furthermore, the weight percentage of hydrogen and methane decreased as the particle size of the feed biomass increased in fluidized bed reactor, a trend is accentuated in the bubbling bed reactor. Residual biomass fuels became as hydrogen and methane gas at comparable rates in the fluidized bed reactor and the bubbling bed
