This project focusing on the pyrolysis behaviors on different biomass residues samples using two different approaches, Py-GCMS and TGA machine. In this project the author also discussed the kinetic study of each biomass during the pyrolysis process. Pyrolysis is one of the processes that took part during the thermochemical conversion of biomass into useful energy. Even though there are a lot of studies and experiment still ongoing to fully understand this process, pyrolysis gain a lot of attention from the experts since the process directly convert biomass and yields 3 major products at once; an array of solid, liquid and gaseous products only by undergo thermal decomposition with the absence of oxygen. Therefore, to achieve the objectives, the study first emphasize on total understanding regarding the biomass and its conversion process. The draft of the experiment methodology will be prepared once the basic information regarding the process is understood. The data obtain after the experiment commencement is analyzed and comparison between all biomass residues samples will be jot down for further discussion. Based on the above comparison, the pyrolysis behavior of each sample is elaborated and then determined biomass with the highest energy conversion rate. The kinetic parameters of each biomass samples are calculated to help in better understanding of the pyrolysis process.
