Notar® - The sole industrial gasifier that produces a clean tar free syngas from biomass.

Notar®, the medium scale down-draft gasification technology is the process which produces Tar Free Syngas from biomass.

It is designed with a multi-stage process and a splitting of the pyrolysis, combustion and reduction zones. This physical separation leads to a compact gasification unit producing a very high-quality syngas. The NOTAR® is designed to destroy all traces of tar but also to eliminate heavy metals and organic pollutants thus producing a clean and renewable syngas. Combined with a cogeneration engine, the NOTAR® gasification process works in extended applications in cogeneration of electricity, heat and cold from excess heat, or in industrial processes on a 24/7 basis as it does not rely on weather conditions. This technology is a solution to valorise "A wood" from pruning and roadside maintenance as well as "B wood" from recycling containers.
