Kinetics of gasification of char from olive tree pruning was measured in a fluidized bed at temperatures between 760 and 900 ºC. Experiments were carried out using H2O­N2 and CO2­N2 mixtures to measure the rates of the gasification reactions with H2O and CO2 and to assess the inhibition effects of H2 and CO. The reaction rates with H2O were 3­4 times faster than those obtained with CO2 and inhibition by CO and H2 was observed...
