Investigation of co-gasification of rubber seed shell and high density polyethylene mixtures
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, the steam gasification of rubber seed shell and high density polyethylene mixtures were carried out in a thermogravimetric instrument coupled with mass spectrometer (TGA-MS) in argon atmosphere under non-isothermal condition to analyse the effect of the gas composition such as H2, CO, CO2, and CH4when using different percentage of high density polyethylene of 0-40 weight% in the mixtures and operating temperature of 700 -900 °C. The argon gas was supplied at a flowrate of 100 µL min-1and the steam was generated from superheater at 110 °C whilst injected at flowrate of 3,000 µL h-1into the TGA-MS system. The highest H2and CO concentrations can be achieved at 56 and 29 vol% in this system at a temperature of 900 C.
