Abstract

In this study, hazelnut shell was subjected to thermogravimetric analysis to establish burning profiles in a dynamic dry air atmosphere. The Turkish hazelnut shell with a particle size of -0.250 mm was heated up to 1,173 K by heating rates of 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 K/min. This study revealed that heating rate during oxidation is an important parameter affecting thermal behavior of hazelnut shell. A strong relation was determined between the heating rate and the intensity of the peaks on the burning profiles.
