Abstract

Thermogravimetry (TG) and differential thermal analysis were used to investigate combustion behavior with the addition of cornstalk to coal powder and coal tar at three different heating rates: 5, 10, and 15 °C min−1. Different reaction kinetic mechanisms with the classical Arrhenius model were used to treat TG data. The first-order combustion model fitted the data well. The combustion characteristics of the two masses were analyzed according to combustion characteristics parameters such as ignition temperature, peak temperature at maximum weight loss rate, and burnout temperature, among others. By calculation, a uniform trend of decreasing activation energies was observed with the addition of cornstalk. The rate of coal powder and coal tar combustion process was also greatly improved.
