Abstract [en]

This paper presents results from a thermogravimetric analysis and modelling based study using a fresh water alga, Chlorococcum humicola, and a Victorian Brown Coal and their blends at different proportions. Pyrolysis was studied using the pure coal and pure algae as well as their blends to a final temperature of 1000°C at different heating rates to understand the kinetics. The kinetic data of pure algae and pure coal were used to predict the pyrolysis characteristics of coal-algae blends at various heating rates using a modified distributed activation energy model which closely matched the experimental data. The experimental results also indicate that there is no chemical interaction between the algae and coal during pyrolysis. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
