The development of efficient processes for biomass conversion is currently one of the challenges for developing renewable energies in Europe and reaches the European goal for a sustainable development. Biomass gasification using the FICFB process was studied to demonstrate the technical relevance and to bring responses to the technological keys of the biomass conversion into BioSNG. The local behavior of the FICFB integration in the process was investigated using a customized version of the commercial CFD ANSYS-Fluent code. According to the design, the char had no real impact on the fluidized bed behavior and was correctly evacuated at the bottom of the gasifier in the direction of the combustion. For biomass, the design tended to increase the quantity of this phase in the gasifier if not the phase change (pyrolysis) is not considered. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the International Gas Union Research Conference (Copenhagen, Denmark 9/17-19/2014).
