This work aims to study the thermal behaviour of olive pomace (OP), pyrenean oak (PK) and their blends under pyrolysis using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). By coupling mass spectrometric analysis (MS) it was possible to monitorize the emissions released during the process. The OP/PK blends were prepared at five different ratios and experiments were carried out under non-isothermal conditions in the temperature range 25-750 ºC using Ar as inert gas. Thus, the following species were analysed:...
