Effect of Reaction Time and Air Flow Rate on the Yield of Hydrogen Obtained from the Gasification of Tobacco Waste

Serkan Karadeniz and Nezihe Ayas
Abstract—In order to meet the ever growing energy demand of the world and to keep the environment clean, new studies on the topic of utilization of biomass are being carried out. Using different methods such as gasification to convert waste biomass into more valuable forms are constantly being studied.
In this study, gasification of tobacco waste was carried out using Na2CO3 as a catalyst and dry air as a gasifying agent. Effects of reaction time (10, 15 and 20 min.) and dry air flow rate (2, 3 and 4 L/h) on the product gas composition have been studied. Highest Hydrogen yield of 5.65 mole gas/kg biomass was obtained under 4 L/h dry air flow rate and 15 min. reaction time conditions.

Index Terms—Biomass, gasification, hydrogen, tobacco.
