This paper presents process synthesis and novel integrated reactor design for methane rich gas. This new process consists of a) Pyrolysis of organic waste material for producing biooil, char and pyrogas, (b) Steam assisted hydrogasification of pyrogas mixed biooil and char for methane rich gas and coupling integrated pyrolysis­ hydrogasification reactor to gas turbine CHP process for heat, steam and electricity.
