In this paper, a review of the different possible gas and solid fuels for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) is presented. Much research has been performed with gaseous fuels in SOFCs. On the contrary, much work remains on the direct use of solid fuels in SOFCs to overcome all the technical challenges that these systems present. The challenges are even greater when the use of complex solid waste is considered. However, the development of efficient and sustainable energy systems that can operate with waste is of general interest to the energy sector and the environment, as waste management is of major concern. In particular, the re-utilisation or disposal of plastics is of great importance due to their worldwide usage and their slow degradation. The use of an untreated wood and polystyrene mixture in an electrolyte-supported fuel cell with a NiO-YSZ anode and LSM-based cathode was also investigated in this work.
