Research Project Summary Information

Demonstration of State of the Art Wood Gasification with Efficiency Emissions Monitoring (ST10668-1)

Advanced Climate Technologies, LLC


State-of-the-art, European-style, wood chip and pellet, gasification boilers can achieve highly efficient use of fuel while producing much lower levels of emissions than conventional-type biomass boilers that are currently used in the United States.

Project Description

Energy efficiency and emissions (PM2.5, particle size distribution, EC, OC, PAHs, CO, CO2, NOx, SOx, and VOCs) will be measured by the Clarkson University Center for Air Resources Engineering and Sciences, working under Advanced Climate Technologies LLC. An economic analysis will be performed by Cornell University. Project technology transfer will be directed toward wood lot owners, the pellet industry, the NYSDEC Lands and Forest program, Clarkson University, Cornell University, and general public visitors to the Cayuga Nature Center.


Benefits include reduced fossil fuel consumption and improved environmental performance of wood combustion through use of low emissions, wood-fired boilers.
