In this study, the burning profiles of twenty-five lignite samples originating from different parts of Turkey were obtained using a thermogravimetry technique (TGA). In the light of these profiles, the effect of the mineral matter content on the combustion behaviour of the lignite samples is discussed. The DTG curves of the lignite samples before and after mineral matter removal were obtained from TG applications under the same working conditions.
