Abstract

In this research, combustion curves of seventeen lignite samples from the Thrace basin (Turkey) were analysed using thermal analysis (TG/DTG) techniques. A comparative analysis was performed considering the relationship between peak temperature, burn-out temperature, moisture content, ash, volatile matter, fixed carbon and calorific values of the samples studied and the results are discussed.
