Brief content Gasification is a process that converts organic materials into carbon monoxide, hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Gasification of waste polymer for example tire, HDPE, LDPE, PS, PET and PP, were made. The air was used as the gasification medium for all experiments. Waste polymers were heated to a final temperature 900 °C with a residence time of 20 °C.min-1. The gaseous products were determined by gas chromatography. The solid residues and liquid condensates were analyzed too. The highest lover heating value of syngas was determined for mixture of tire and HDPE (7:3) and the most of gaseous products were analyzed for mixture of tire and HDPE (9:1). The highest lover heating value (39MJ.kg-1) of condensate from gasification of HDPE was analyzed by means of gas chromatography with mass spectrometer. Acknowledgments Experimental results were accomplished by using large research infrastructure enregat supported by the ministry of education, youth and sports of the Czech Republic under project No. LM2018098 and by EU structural funding in Operational Programme Research, Development and Education, project No. CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/16_019/0000853 „IET-ER“.
