ROMERO MILLAN, Lina María  y  SIERRA VARGAS, Fabio Emiro. Carbon materials for syngas conditioning and tar removal. Ingeniería Mecánica [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.2, pp. 99-107. ISSN 1815-5944.

Within the framework of worldwide energy context, the development of technologies and processes for energy production form renewable and non-conventional sources is a priority. According to this, gasification is an interesting process that converts different kinds of organic materials in fuel gases. The main issue related with this process is the fact that the producer gas contains also contaminants and tars that are undesirable for the gas usage in internal combustion motors or turbines. The present work aims to analyze the actual state of the existing methods to remove tars form gasification fuel gases, emphasizing the use of different kinds of carbon materials.

Palabras clave : activated carbon; biomass; char; gasification; syngas; tars.
