Enhancements of Syngas Production in Coal Gasification with CO2 Conversion Under Plasma Conditions

Abstract: 

A process and apparatus for enhancement of syngas production (CO and H.sub.2) of a carbon based feedstock with CO.sub.2 conversion, which utilized CO.sub.2 as an oxygen resource and converts CO.sub.2 to CO through chemical reactions. The process includes a thermal plasma reactor and optionally a nonthermal plasma reactor.
