In this research, combustion characterization of 3 different coals of Turkey, from the Soma, Tuncbilek, and Afsin Elbistan regions, were investigated with thermal analysis techniques such as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetry (TG/DTG). Lime was added to these coals in concentrations of 3, 7, and 10% by weight to investigate the change in combustible sulfur content and sulfur in ash. It was observed that lime has a positive effect on sulfur emission. Kinetic analysis was also performed to see the effect of lime addition on combustion properties and reaction parameters of the coal samples studied.
