Abstract. Gasification of various hydrocarbons with help of thermal plasma is studied at the Institute of Plasma Physics (IPP). Such treatment can be way of recycling of polymer waste with production of high purity synthesis gas (syngas) mainly composed of hydrogen and CO. A plasma torch with hybrid stabilization of arc used in the reactor allows higher efficiency for gasification than other processes. This work is a preparation of the experiment for gasification of polyethylene (PE). Basic description and analysis of the gasification reactor is done. Analysis of reaction taking place is made. On the base of derived information optimal composition flow rates and power balance of the process are calculated
