The paper presents the experimental results of Food Court Waste air gasification using a batch reactor. This type of waste is generated mainly in the food court areas of services spaces, shopping centers, airports and malls and is generally composed of paper & cardboard, plastic, organic, wood, metal and glass waste. The process operating parameters were: temperatures between 650°C and 850°C and an equivalent ratio of 0.25 and 0.4 respectively. The study focused on the influence of process parameters on the energy conversion rate considering the cold gas and hot gas efficiency correlated with the feedstock carbon conversion rate. The recorded instantaneous concentrations of sampled gas species were plotted in time dependent graphs for accurate variation curves of gases concentrations. The results can be used to isolate the startup stage of the gasification process and to establish the optimal process parameters for increased overall energy efficiency. In conclusion, considering the current setup, operational parameters and process energy efficiency, the optimal temperature for the air gasification of Food Court Waste is 850ºC with an equivalent ratio of 0.40.
