Abstract

Huge amounts of Xanthoceras sorbifolia husks (XSH) are typically discarded after oil extraction. Since pyrolysis represents a promising solution to harness the bio-energy of XSH, in the present work the pyrolytic and kinetic characteristics of XSH and related crude cellulose extract (CCE) were studied considering different rates of heating (10, 30 and 50°C min−1). The pyrolysis activation energy, pre-exponential factors and mechanism function were computed using different models namely Popescu, FWO (Flynn-Wall-Ozawa) and KAS (Kissinger-Akahira-Sunose). The pyrolysis process was articulated into three stages: dehydration (Stage I), primary devolatilization (Stage II), residual decomposition (Stage III). Marked variations in the average activation energy, thermal stability, final residuals and rate of reaction were noted. Stage II of XSH and CCE could be described by the Avramic-Erofeev equations. The average activation energies of XSH and CCE were found to be 269 and 296 kJ mol−1, respectively.
