A one-dimensional kinetic model for steam‑oxygen gasification of refuse derived fuel in a bubbling fluidized bed reactor has been developed. The model incorporates the reaction network of steam‑oxygen gasification within the fluid dynamics of a fluidized bed to predict waste and tars conversion, gas composition and overall gasification performance. The model was validated by comparing outlet products composition and temperature profile with experimental data from a pilot-scale fluidized bed gasifier, operated at different conditions. The model showed accurate predictive capability and ease of computation. The effects of the operating conditions on gas yield and process efficiency were evaluated and the most appropriate fuel feeding height, equivalent ratio and the relative amount of steam to inject were identified.
