Abstract (en)

Gas generator to produce a combustible gas, particularly methane and carbon oxide, starting from solid fuels, said gas generator including a containing structure defining at least a conduit (18) through which the solid fuel descends and comprising an upper part (10a) and a lower part (10b) defining a hearth (30) where the combustion and gassification of said solid fuel occurs, the combustible gas produced being fed to at least one user machine, said containing structure being equipped with walls able to define chambers and interspaces communicating with said at least one conduit (18) through which the solid fuel descends, said chambers and interspaces being associated with at least an aperture (19) through which hot gases are introduced into the gas generator (10), said hot gases arriving from the exhausts of said user machines or from the cooling systems of the mechanical parts of said user machines to allow the at least partial energy recovery of said hot gases, means (28) being included to convey to said hearth (30) at least part of the volatile parts arriving from the distillation of the fuel and used as comburent in order to reduce the quantity of new comburent air taken in from outside. <IMAGE>
