In addition to the great advantages brought by the industrial revolution, the inevitably emerging global pollution is an important criterion in determining the methods used in energy production, especially the selection of raw materials used for energy production. It has become a necessity to use environmentally friendly technologies instead of traditional methods in order to prevent the environmentally harmful emissions of flue gases that are expelled by burning coal in thermal power plants. The flue gas that is discharged from thermal power plants can be converted into syngas, and it is possible to discharge it as both additional energy and a cleaner gas only thanks to plasma technologies and this constitutes the main theme of this study.

The carbon dioxide content in the syngas is significantly lower and the combustible component is higher than conventional gasification processes, which has a beneficial effect on the environment and are important to meet the requirements of the Kyoto Protocol, when coal is gasified using plasma technologies.

Keywords: Arc plasma; Microwave plasma; Syngas; Flue gas
