Downdraft Gasification Reactors for Rice Husks
Rice husks have been a source of energy for many centuries. Thus their more efficient use was one of the major goals when the first special rice husk downdraft gasifiers where develeoped at the end of the 19th century at Deutz AG in Cologne, Germany.
This technology was applied globally and continuously improved to match the special demands to which the gasification of a light weight material like rice husks is subject to. Having aquired all the technology and research experience from the former wold-market leader in gasification technology, the Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz AG (KHD AG), in a management buyout A.H.T. Pyrogas is able to offer today a gasification reactor tailored specifically to the gasification of rice husks.
Small in size, these rice husk gasifiers are especially attractive for agricultural communities in rural areas with no direct access to the electrical grid. Here rice husk gasifiers can supply electricity and even centralized heating for villages, raising the standards of living for their people and making life there more attractive helping to reduce the demand for migration to cities which could endanger agricultural production and local supply.
