Among the options for clean energy production, the gasification process is receiving increasing attention as it offers the best combination of investment and value of produced electricity compared to other methods. An Aspen Plus model of co‐gasification of biomass and coal with in situ CO2 capture was developed to evaluate its potential for hydrogen production and cracking of organic impurities, i.e., tars. The effects of some critical operational variables on gas composition and yields of hydrogen gas and tar were investigated. The obtained results indicate that the fuel particle size plays a minor role in the process; smaller particles favor the conversion of tar and production of more hydrogen gas.
