A pilot-scale, updraft, batch gasifier was designed, fabricated and tested at Oklahoma State University for gasification of food processing byproducts. An economic feasibility study was conducted using the thermal energy production potential from this research. For the subject Oklahoma food processing plant, this analysis indicated that 4.38 x 1010 BTU/year could be provided for steam generation which may be translated to approximately $479,000/year in fuel savings.
