The catalytic effects of Zn on the yield of the gaseous products during steam gasification of lignite char were investigated by using a fixed-bed reactor. The gas composition was measured using a gas chromatography (GC). The experimental results show that Zn has catalytic effects on steam gasification and increased the yield of H2. There was an optimum content of Zn implanted into the coal above which zinc does not show further catalytic activity.
