Pore structure is one of the most important factors that dominate the reactivity of post-combustion of coal-chars derived from partial gasification process of atmospheric and pressurized spouted fluidized bed gasifiers. The influential factors on pore structure of coal-chars were analyzed in terms of the coal size feed, operational conditions, coal-char size and its components. It concluded that pyrolysis and devolatilization play a leading role in forming the pore structure of coal-chars in the partial gasification process. It is the reaction of coal-char with CO2 and H2O (steam) that plays a dominant positive impact on promoting enlargement and development of the coal-char pores at the elevated pressure gasification. There may exist an optimal coal-char size range that possesses abundant porosity and bigger pore specific surface area, which contributes to enhancing the gasification reactions in the atmospheric gasifier.
