Abstract

In this study, the thermal analysis of co-combustion of biomass fuels and oil shale were investigated. The objective was to assess the effect of the biomass on combustion performance when blended with oil shale. Thermogravimetric analysis and differential scanning calorimetry were used to analyze the samples. The biomass samples studied were hazelnut shell, wheat bran, poplar, and miscanthus. Co-combustion of blends were performed at different biomass proportions (10, 20, 50 % by wt.).
