The paper reports the result of olive pruning combustion test.
The pruning chemical composition and the thermotechnical characteristics are reported.
The environmental performance were evaluated following the Externe Project methodology with the aim to compare the environmental costs (mEuro/MJth) of different fuels, both fossils and biomass. As results it was pointed out that a biomass commercial boiler can be used without any adaptations with olive pruning as the test reported an efficiency of 67% and emissions in the law range andi t was evaluated that olive pruning has an environmental cost equal to methane combustion.
