The interest in biomass utilization has been enhanced in recent years. With the Biomass-Heat pipe-Gasifier (HPG), an innovative pressurized allothermic gasification technology, a hydrogen-rich product gas can be generated, which is well suitable for production of fuel gas. Based on this model the thermo-chemical conversion process of solid biomass in the HPG was analyzed. The operating parameters reactor temperature and pressure as well as mean residence time were varied and their influence on amount and composition of residue char was determined. Further an efficiency diagram, characterizing the operation state of the HPG, was created.
