Biomass and energy crops are the renewable energy sources, which is often believed to have the highest potential to contribute to a future sustainable energy supply to world's energy. Bioenergy is expected to become one of the best option energy sources to cope with global warming and exhaustion of fossil fuel resources. A wide range of process and routes are available for power generation. Pyrolysis is another emerging technology to convert solid wastes to char, gases and liquid fuels. In this study, our aim is to evaluate the pyrolytic behaviour of Euphorbia rigida known as a plant abundantly grown in and lands by comparing the results of the previous studies at different pyrolysis conditions.
