Abstract

Much interest is currently being shown on Gasification technology due to its versatility, the various technological arrange-ments it exhibits and its environmental advantage in converting any biomass or coal into a clean syngas. Many people have conducted studies on gasification processes in the past, but these results are mostly scattered, making it hard to keep track of the findings. This paper presents a comprehensive review of the literature on the effect of various gasification process parameters like feed oxygen, steam concentrations, pressure and temperature on syngas composition, heating value and the efficiency of gasifiers. The review seeks to streamline the information with the objective of determining the optimal gasification process conditions for best quality and quantity of syngas. Reviews of gasification technologies and process classifi-cations are also presented.
Keywords—Gasification, Oxidizing agent, Feedstock, Syngas
