The present study concerns the problem of natural and double diffusive natural convection inside differentially heated cavity filled with a binary mixture composed of air and carbon dioxide (CO2). Temperature and CO2 concentration gradients are imposed on both perpendicular left and right walls. Simulations have been performed using the CFD commercial code ANSYS Fluent by solving continuity, momentum, energy and species diffusion equations. Numerical results obtained have been compared to data from the literature for both natural convection thermosolutal cases under laminar and turbulent regimes. For turbulent runs the RNG k-ε model has been selected. A good agreement has been noted between the different types of data for both cases for Rayleigh number ranging between 103 and 1010 and buoyancy ratio between -5 and +5. Entropy generation rates due to thermal, viscous and diffusive effects have been calculated in post processing for all cases.
