The thermogravimetric method allows to carry out measurements both in isothermal conditions for a given temperature and in non-isothermal conditions at a set heating rate. The aim of the work was to compare the process of gasification of the same coal in an atmosphere of CO2 under isothermal and non-isothermal conditions. The measurements were carried out with the use of DynTHERM Thermogravimetric analyzer by Rubotherm. Char derived from Polish bituminous coal “Janina” was used as material for gasification. In case of the isothermal method the measurements were performed at three temperatures – 850 °C, 900 °C and 950 °C, while in case of the non-isothermal method for three heating rates, i.e. 3 K/min, 5 K/min and 10 K/min. Based on the results obtained, kinetics curves of conversion degree of the gasification process were developed and kinetic parameters of the gasification reaction i.e. reaction order, activation energy and pre-exponential factor were determined. The values of the kinetic parameters obtained from measurements performed in isothermal and non-isothermal conditions were compared.
