Fe-olivine was investigated in a dual circulating fluidised bed reactor system with focus on hydrocarbon reforming activity and effects of oxygen transfer. H2, CO2, CH4 and 1-methylnaphthalene were fed as a surrogate gas mixture to the reforming part. Oxygen transport was developed by solids circulation. Tar decomposition was marginally affected by partial oxidation. The overall degree of tar decomposition was found to be in the range of 70 to 80%.
