Abstract

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title> <jats:p>An innovative integrated gasification and plasma-catalytic system has been developed to produce cleaner syngas from a model biofeedstock (<jats:italic>α</jats:italic>-cellulose). The influence of Co/<jats:italic>γ</jats:italic>-Al<jats:sub>2</jats:sub>O<jats:sub>3</jats:sub> catalyst on the plasma reforming of tar-contaminated syngas has been investigated using a cylindrical dielectric barrier discharge reactor. The results show that plasma-catalytic processing of the syngas from biomass gasification significantly reduces the concentration of tars by 88% and enhances the total gas product yield and the syngas ratio (H<jats:sub>2</jats:sub>/CO) by up to 90%.</jats:p>
