What is it about?
* This study investigates the co-pyrolysis of sugarcane bagasse and sewage sludge to assess the synergistic effect of adding bagasse into sewage sludge. * The study analyzes the kinetics and thermodynamics of the co-pyrolysis process using different reaction mechanisms. * The results show that the addition of bagasse enhances the co-pyrolysis process. * The co-pyrolysis zone is divided into two reaction zones, and bagasse has higher activation energy and pre-exponential factors compared to sewage sludge. * Among the different blends, the 70% bagasse and 30% sewage sludge blend show the highest activation energy and pre-exponential factors.
