Abstract: The gasification of rice husk char in carbon dioxide and steam was investigated for determining the kinetic parameters. Experiments were conducted with rice husk char in its original grain form in a silica tube reactor with steam at temperatures of 750°C, 800°C, 850°C and 900°C and experiments were conducted with rice husk char powder in a thermogravimetric balance in a carbon dioxide medium at temperatures of 750°C, 800°C, 850°C and 900°C. The data was analysed based on the volume reaction and shrinking core models. The activation energies obtained for the rice husk grain sample were 200 kJ/mol and for the rice husk powder, about 180 kJ/mol respectively. The results obtained are in good agreement with literature values of different char gasification reactions.
