Fossil based fuels, which contains carbon are used to produce CO and H-2 at 700-1200 degrees C by gasification method. In this method, chemical reaction was occured by sending vapour over preheated carbon. In tills study, burnable gas is produced by two different methods. In the first method, an experimental setup used in laboratory, preheated coal particules placed in reactor is gasificated In this experimental reactor temperatures, amount of water vapour used, sizes of particule and amount of gas output are investigated. In the second method. coal particules in tile reactor preheated by solar energy Is introduced. In this system, a stainless metal reactor. which is put in the focus of parabolic reflector, is used, In these experiments. coal, graphite and wild reed for comparison are gasificated according to tile amount of vapour for different reactor temperatures The produced gases are analysed chemically. As a result, a mobile solar energy based system's plan is given for middle size industry and it is open for discussion using in industry.
