The paper discusses a biomass power plant at Camp Lejeune, undertaken to demonstrate that biomass energy conversion is a competitive lower-polluting, electrical power option for government installations, industrial sites, rural cooperatives, small municipalities, and regions of developing countries. The plant incorporates a moving bed bulk wood dryer; a downdraft, fixed-bed gasifier utilizing hogged wood residues; a gas cleaning and cooling system; and a spark ignition engine. Operation of the plant has resulted in characterization of all major technical challenges and provided solutions. The paper briefly describes the process design, initial operational results, and further needs.
