Abstract


The present work describes an experimental investigation concerning the characterization of char and oil obtained through Low Temperature Conversion (LTC) process applied to biomass of Eichhornia crassipes. Basic analysis (heating values, elemental analysis, total ash and moisture content) of char and oil are reported. The preliminary characteristics of the oil and the char obtained indicate the viability of their use as, for instance, in the generation of energy.
