This paper focuses to the thermo-chemical conversion of sewage sludge into valuable products using pressure of 0.1 and 1.0 bar, and temperatures of 500 and 900°C in a tubular reactor. Both the reactor pressure and pyrolysis temperature had a significant effect on the product yields and composition. Higher gas yield was found at higher temperature and lower pressure. The lower reactor pressure resulted higher heating values of the gas fraction. Due to its significantly higher carbon monoxide content, more syngas (hydrogen and carbon monoxide) was observed using 0.1 bar pressure. Regarding the char, their composition can be also significantly affected by the reactor pressure, however their morphology differed slightly. To enhance the product yield and affect their properties natural sourced dolomite was also used. It was concluded, that the dolomite mixing into the raw material can enhanced the dry reforming reactions and increase the syngas yield.
