The compost produced from organic wastes (MSW, city market’s wastes and wood dust) was selected to be processed via supercritical water gasification (SCWG) in order to produce gas product consisting of hydrogen and methane mainly. The effects of parameters such as tem-perature, reaction time and KOH as an additive were determined and around 55 vol.% of H2 and CH4 in the gas product was found after 30 min reaction time together with KOH, at 500 °C. The red mud catalysts did not improve the gasification yields even though they in-creased the calorific value of the product gas.
