|Title:||Isoconversional kinetic study of the thermal decomposition of sugarcane straw for thermal conversion processes|
|Author:||Rueda-Ordóñez, Yesid Javier|
|Abstract:||The aim of this work was investigate the kinetics of the thermal decomposition reaction of sugarcane straw. The thermal decomposition experiments were conducted at four heating rates (1.25, 2.5, 5 and 10 °C/min) in a thermogravimetric analyzer using nitrogen as inert atmosphere. The kinetic analysis was carried out applying the isoconversional method of Friedman, and the activation energies obtained varied from 154.1 kJ/mol to 177.8 kJ/mol. The reaction model was determined through master plots, corresponding to a two-dimensional diffusion. The pre-exponential factor of 1.82 * 109 s−1 was determined by linearization of the conversion rate equation as a function of the inverse of absolute temperature, concerning to activation energy of 149.7 kJ/mol, which are in the order of magnitude for biomass thermal decomposition reported in literature. Finally, the theoretical and experimental conversion data showed a very good agreement, indicating that these results could be used for future process modeling involving sugarcane straw|
