Thermochemical Conversion of Waste Papers to Fuel Gas in a Microwave Plasma Reactor

Parin Khongkrapan, Nakorn Tippayawong, and Tanongkiat Kiatsiriroat
Abstract—In this work, a microwave plasma reactor for conversion of waste papers to generate fuel gas was developed and presented. Experiments were carried out with different air flow rates, focusing on product gas yield and composition. From the results obtained, it was shown that, at a constant input power of 800 W, average gas yield and maximum carbon conversion obtained were 2.10 m3/kg and 59%, respectively. On a nitrogen free basis, total content of CO and H2 in the gas product was 31-43%, which can be used as synthetic gas.

Index Terms—Biomass, gasification, microwave plasma, renewable energy, solid waste.
