Abstract

Aiming at improving the quality of syngas, the thermochemical behaviour of syngas formation during a single coal particle gasification process is investigated based on a validated numerical model. Initially, simulations of coal gasification with steam (H2O) are conducted in a reactor, and the results show that the steam gasification generally favours the production of H2 and CH4. However, a switch of agent to CO2 into the gasifier influences the gasification products having H2, CO and CH4. This is then prompted to the investigation of a mixture of H2O and CO2 agent in the reactor’s environment, and the results show a promising indicator in producing the overall better syngas quality. Moreover, the influence of the coal particle size and gasification temperature on the syngas production is studied. The results identify that the concentration of syngas products is higher when using smaller coal particles as the behaviour of heterogeneous reactions of CO formation is affected by the particle size. Finally, high temperature promoted the chemical reactions of the gasification process, resulting in the improved production of syngas.
