Kinetic Study of Rice Bran by Thermogravimetric Analysis

Meher, Sanjay Kumar (2015) Kinetic Study of Rice Bran by Thermogravimetric Analysis. BTech thesis.



The rise of demand for fossil fuel keeps on reaching sky-high in the 21st century while the supply for it is diminishing day by day. It increased the quest to come up with an alternative source of fuel which can supply the rising demand. Biomass has the potential to cover up for the demands of needing alternate fuels. Biomass can be used as fuels directly by combustion process or by converting the biomass into fluid products. In this work, by using thermogravimetric analysis, the kinetic parameters (EA=Activation energy) of rice bran at different temperatures and conditions has been determined. The activation energy of the rice bran was found out to be in lower range. It allows to blend rice bran into materials which has high activation energy and making pyrolysis feasible.
