    Abstract

    The aim of this study is to develop a straightforward method to perform a kinetic analysis of the biomass pyrolysis, applying a developed peak temperature method to the experimental thermogravimetric data. When performing a non-linear fit to the experimental data, initial values of the parameters to fit, are required. With this peak temperature method, the initial values can be estimated by direct observation of the differential thermogravimetric curves (DTG), which should nott present any difficulty and it will help to achieve convergence more quickly.
