Co-gasification tests of subbituminous coal with biomass were performed. A rape straw blended with coal was used in a mass ratios of coal/biomass of 25%, 50% and 75%. The gasification process was conducted in a circulating fluid bed reactor at atmospheric pressure with air and steam addition was applied to the reaction. The addition of biomass to coal resulted in a higher conversion to gas and increased the gas calorific value due to higher content of carbon oxide
