In general, the raw product gas of biomass gasification contains a range of minor species and contaminants, including particles, tar, alkali metals, chlorine, nitrogen compounds and sulphur compounds. This study reviews the recent developments in product gas cleaning technologies for these species and summarizes the findings of the research project 'Mop fan and electrofilter: an innovative approach for cleaning product gases from biomass gasification' which was recently carried out by the authors. The results of the project showed that combination of mop fan and electrofilter (ESP) has great potential in removing fine particles, tars and chemical contaminants in the product gas.
