Decomposition of tars released form the pyrolysis is an important task for SOFC operation. Using stage divided gasifiers the partial oxidation taking care of cracking the major part of the released tars. In this part of the study pyrolysis equipment will be re-built at DTU. The experimental set-up consists of a unit feeding biomass, an externally heated pyrolysis reactor, and a char container for collecting the char. The produced volatile pyrolysis will be led to a partial oxidation reactor and will be analysed, and possible variation in the tar decomposition will be identified.
