Abstract: This study presents a mathematical model to predict synthesis gas (CO+H2) composition from selected solid wastes (municipal waste, animal waste and agricultural waste) in a downdraft fixed bed reactor. This model assumes chemical and thermodynamic equilibrium with products inside the reactor. Effect of temperature in gasification zone, equivalence ratio and moisture content of biomass on gas composition was investigated. Model helps to know the behaviour of different biomass types and is a useful tool for predicting operating parameters of downdraft gasifiers with this biomass.
