Syngas production via the pyro-gasification of waste biomass is a promising means of managing waste while producing renewable fuel. However, such waste may contain a significant level of impurities such as chlorine, which may result in hydrogen chloride (HCl) being formed in the syngas produced. The presence of HCl gas may increase the risk of corrosion and may be harmful to health and to the environment. Consequently, stricter limits on HCl concentration in syngas are being imposed by environmental regulations and syngas end-use specifications, which is driving the search and development of more efficient and cost-effective methods of eliminating HCl. One such method is dry adsorption using inorganic sorbents. In literature, the majority of sorbents studied are based on commercialised products, and thus, there lack studies on the use of waste-derived sorbents for treating HCl in syngas. Therefore, this paper presents an experimental study on the adsorption potential of the solid waste sorbent, CCW-S, which is compared to that of the commercial sorbent, Bicar. Various physico- chemical analyses were performed on the sorbents before and after the tests, including ICP, FTIR, XRD and TEM-EDX. The first set of adsorption tests were performed using a gas mixture of 500 ppm
