Abstract

Energy needs are increasing day to day but the conventional sources are depleting by consuming. In addition to that, these sources create lot of environmental problems to the society. So people are looking for alternate renewable and sustainable sources to satisfy energy needs. Biomass is one of the best sources and identified as a renewable resource and is sufficiently present in the society. Pyrolysis is the thermal decomposition of biomass occurring in the absence of oxygen to produce solid, liquid and gaseous products. In present study, using thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA), degradation of black babul material was studied. The experiments are conducted in the temperature range of 1050C to 9000C. First stage decomposition occurs at a temperature range of 230°C - 240 °C and second stage decomposition occurs at a temperature range of 370°C -380°C.In addition to that discussed the effect of heating rate on pyrolysis process.
