A method based on thermal analysis techniques was used for the estimation of waste biomass feedstock composition with respect to the main macrocomponents. The method is based on the analysis of thermogravimetric (TG) data obtained for the biomass sample and for the macrocomponents in reference pyrolysis conditions. The method is particularly suitable to quantify the biomass content of a waste feedstock for energy production and to provide information on biomass composition. The coupling of thermogravimetry with Fourier Tranform Infrared (FTIR) analysis of evolved gases was used to provide further data for a more detailed characterization of waste biomass feedstocks, yielding specific data on volatile products released in experimental conditions typical of conventional pyrolysis processes.
