Development and Field Testing of Small Biomass Gasifier-Engine Systems in India: A Joint Project by an American and Indian Team
Under a multi-year United States/India Cooperative Alternative Energy Program, small (about 4 kW) biomass gasifier-engine systems were designed, fabricated, and after laboratory testing, underwent field demonstration tests for lifting irrigation water on selected rural sites in India. This paper presents the work accomplished under the system design, development, laboratory, and field testing phases. Recommendations are made with respect to commercializing biomass gasification technology in India.
