The thermodynamic studies were carried out for the hydrogen production via zinc hydrolysis. It is shows that it is reasonable to keep the temperature of zinc hydrolysis under 900 oC. The system pressure has no notable thermodynamic influences on the hydrolysis reaction. The initial H2O/Zn molar ratio should be controlled in a reasonable range. The concentration of steam in carrying gas in experiments should better be kept above 50%.
