The aim of this work was to investigate the gasification of a Brazilian low-rank coal in the temperature range of 1023-1198 K and steam concentration range of 10-40% in order to evaluate the reaction rate and the product gas composition. Prior to the gasification experiments the raw coal was pyrolysed in a tubular reactor, under N2 atmosphere and at a temperature of 1173 K. The coal and char samples were characterized by several techniques. The gasification experiments were performed in a thermobalance, at atmospheric pressure and isothermal conditions. The reactivity study was conducted in the kinetically controlled regime, three theoretical models were tested to fit the experimental data and the kinetic parameters were determined. It was found that an increase in temperature and steam concentration enhances the reaction rate and also the formation of H2, CO and CO2. The gasification kinetics was suitably described by the Shrinking Core Model and an activation energy of 158 kJ/mol and a reaction order of 0.78 (related to the steam composition) were found. The H2/CO ratio remained nearly constant, about 3.0, in all gasification experiments.
