Waste such as contaminated biomass, which contain potentially high level of heavy metals, are widely available resources. One of the drawbacks of using this biomass in gasification processes is that some heavy metals might be transferred in the produced syngas, and requires then specific further cleaning steps. Thermodynamic equilibrium calculations are a relevant tool to estimate the behavior of those heavy metals to manage the syngas treatment. The calculations were made with the commercial software FactSage. Due to the several thousands of produced compounds, a specific methodology was set up to choose the stable compounds of the database for the simulations. As an illustrative example, the results of the thermodynamic equilibrium calculations of lead are presented in this paper.
