Abstract [en]

Gasification of excavated Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) for energy and materials recovery has been seen as a solution for current energetic, environmental and land availability issues. However, it poses many technological challenges, and among them the most difficult is to obtain of a tar-free syngas. In this work, two set of experiments were performed in order to obtain a syngas from MSW with a low tar content. In the first stage, MSW gasification was performed in order to identify the tar yield and composition at different temperatures using air and steam. After that, the most representative tar compound, naphthalene, was selected to perform tar cracking experiments in a pulsed corona plasma reactor able to operate from ambient temperature up to 1200ᵒC. The results of these experiments show that the pulsed corona plasma can enhance the tar thermal cracking reactions, reducing by 200ᵒC the temperature at which 100% of the naphthalene is converted.
