Gas turbines (GT) have emerged as the most efficient means of transforming heat into mechanical work and with efficient generators are serving as major components of new electricity generation systems. The CCTL research and development efforts are directed towards developing a low cost solid fuel (SF) cogasifier fed by low cost local feedstocks to be coupled with smaller GT systems. The benefits of such systems can be enhanced if valuable by-products are produced or additional community purposes are served. We consider cogasification of biomass with other domestic fuels as a long term strategy for effective utilization of biomass. Our theoretical and experimental work indicate that blending oxygenated fuels such as biomass, MSW, RDF and dried sewage sludge with carbonaceous fuels such as coals, coke and chars in a small cogeneration system will have technological, economic and environmental advantages.
