Although the gasification approach has been used as an advantageous route for the production of syngas, the presence of condensable organic compounds or tar in the product gas is invariably problematic [1,2]. The persistent build-up of tar in the flue gas makes the gas unsuitable for particular applications and induces blockages and corrosion in downstream installations, thereby decreasing overall gasification performance. Fuel and catalyst are also applied directly to the gasifier, which works under the pre-set conditions of the reactor, to generate product gas along with liquid tar and solid fly ash [1-4].
