Lions Sponsorship 2020
Price Winner Katharina Fürsatz from BEST - Bioenergy and Sustainable Technologies GmbH is a PhD student at the Institute of Chemical, Environmental and Bioscience Engineering (research group future energy technology) and is supervised by Prof. Hermann Hofbauer. Her day-to-day research work is done at BEST, a K1 Centre run under the COMET Competence Centre Programme. For her thesis she works in the field of dual fluidized bed (DFB) steam gasification. She mainly focuses on the role of fuel ash and bed material on the product gas quality obtained during DFB steam gasification. The ash layers, that form on the bed material during gasification have a considerable positive influence on the catalytic activity leading to higher contents of hydrogen and lower tar contents in the product gas.
