Chemical characterization of selected dryland woody biomass tree species for energy production



Chemical characterization of selected dryland woody biomass tree species for energy production



Indian Journal of Dryland Agricultural Research and Development 16(1): 51-54



Proximate and ultimate analyses were carried out in order to characterize 11 dryland wood species namely Eucalyptus hybrid, Prosopis juliflora, Tamarindus indicus, Acacia leucopholea, Leucaena leucocephala, Peltophorum ferugienum, Acacia nilotica, Delonix regia, Syzygium cumini, Albizia amara, Casuarina equisetifolia for effective gasification. The density of wood species was low for Leucaena leucocephala at 630 kg/m3 and high for T. indicus and A. amara species at 850 kg/m3.
