Co-Pyrolysis Behavior of Biomass Fuels with Sewage Sludge

L. Wang, Ø. Skreiberg, J.E. Hustad & M. Grønli
Sewage sludge is a promising fuel to co-combust with biomass fuels with benefits of energy production and reducing of ash related problems. However, the fundamental knowledge on the influence of sewage sludge on biomass thermal degradation behaviors is rare. In this work, a combination of thermogravimetry and evolved gas analysis by mass spectrometry (TG-MS) has been applied to investigate the thermal degradation and kinetics properties of oat straw and bark with and without blending with...
