When biomass undergoes gasification to become biofuels, tar is often produced. Tar has different compositions depending on the biomass it comes from, but adheres to pipes and other equipment. To get rid of tar, the boiler must be heated to very high temperatures, up to 1,200 degrees. “The higher the temperature, the more tar is destroyed’, says Abas Mohsenzadeh, a Days of Knowledge Tp funds the "Re:Textile Factory" project, Sparbanksstiftelsen Sjuhärad is providing SEK 560 000.
