    Abstract

    The fuelwood characteristics of ten different tree species have been investigated. The species investigated were Mango (Mangifera Indica) ,Tamarind (Tamarindus Indica), Raintree (Samanea Saman),Javaplum/ Jamun (Syzygium Jambolanum),Margosa / Neem (Azadirachta Indica ),Lemon tree (Citrus Limonia),Pine tree (Pinus Caribaea)Black Mangrove / Tiri-tiri (Bruguieria Gymnohiza),Guava (Psidium Guajava),and Australian Pine / Jhau (Casuarinaceae Casuarina Equisetifolia L.). The properties examined were their moisture content and how it varied over a period of ‘drying time’, calorific value and its dependency on the moisture content, and their emissions and efficiency when burnt in a miniature rocket stove.
