ISU’s proposed research will (1) develop methods for designing clean and efficient burners for low‐Btu producer gas and medium‐Btu syngas, (2) develop catalysts and flow reactors to produce ethanol from medium‐Btu synthesis gas, and (3) upgrade the BECON gasifier system to enable medium‐Btu syngas production and greatly enhanced capabilities for detailed gas analysis needed by both (1) and (2). This project addresses core development needs to enable grain ethanol industry reduce its natural gas demand and ultimately transition to cellulosic ethanol production.
