Olivine can be used effectively in the biomass gasification process for conversions for heat, electricity and fuel.

Olivine’s catalytic behaviour has highlighted it as an excellent catalyst for in-bed biomass gasification. Using Olivine in this primary method is aiding with a significant reduction in tar which is a major problem in the biomass gasification process.  Due to Olivine’s attrition resistance and the high Iron content in LKAB Minerals' Olivine, this mineral is an excellent performer as a catalyst in fluid bed and moving bed biomass gasifiers.
