The gasification of wastes and biomass is regarded as a viable thermal treatment process to produce syngas composed largely of hydrogen, methane, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. However, the process of gasification could be improved if the residual tar could be converted to hydrogen and methane gas and the carbon dioxide could be adsorbed via carbon capture within the process. Thereby the gases would have a much higher calorific value. In this work, a two...
