Gasification of municipal solid waste is considered as a key tool for recovering energy from landfills. However there is a huge obstacle which limits the use of the syngas produced:  the presence of tars. In this research I use a novel technology, a hybrid reactor using high temperatures and a corona plasma,  in order to get rid of tars in syngas.  The objective is to find the right process conditions (using data from literature and from an industrial gasification reactor) that reduce the tar concentrations as low as to use syngas in gas turbines, fuel-cells and fischer-tropsch synthesis. Do you want more information? Do you have any questions regarding the project? Contact me at yamidali.gomezrueda@kuleuven.be and I will help you as much as I can.
