In Poland, among all renewable energy sources, share of biomass in electricity production is the largest. Great potential in biomass utilization involves use of gasification technology. The course of biomass gasification process in steam atmosphere is the subject of numerous scientific studies. The aim of this study was kinetics examination of pressurized beech wood waste gasification, that can be successfully used in industrial gasification. Measurements were carried out on a unique laboratory installation, that allows kinetics examination of solid fuels gasification with steam at wide range of pressures, via using thermovolumetric method. Formation rates of main gaseous products were determined, moreover, composition of post-reaction gas, as well as biomass conversion degree depending on the temperature were specified. Kinetic parameters of gasification were calculated and series of kinetic models were used to their designation ie Isoconvesional method, Integrated Core Model (ICM), Grain Model (GM) and Random Pore Model (RPM).
