Abstract:This paper continues the review of gasifier monitoring results by presenting details from units in Vanuatu and in Mali.

A presentation of all the data in a summarised form is made and the advantages and dangers of installation evaluation based on data in such a form are highlighted. Values, typical of gasifiers in the field, are presented for many of the 19 parameters used in these papers. It is concluded that gasifiers (generally) work well in the field, but must be tailored not only to the needs of the energy demand, but also to the needs of the feedstock. The disposal of contaminated waste water streams is a continuing problem in Developing Countries, in spite of suitable technology being available in Developed Countries to render the waste streams safe. In summary, the problems no longer lie with the technology of gasification per se, they are now associated with its implementation.
