Understand in a moving bed gasifier (updraft / downdraft / crossdraft) if
one has to use rice-husk as feed stock, then it has got to be briquetted as
otherwise (that is if used directly without briquetting) consistence
in gas quality and quantity from large gasifiers (say 500 KWe and
above) is difficult to ensure, which makes power generation virtually
