Two microalgae residue samples of Chlorella sorokiniana CY1 and Chlamydomonas sp. JSC4 from Taiwan were experimentally studied by means of a thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA), PerkinElmer Diamond TG/DTA, operated non-isothermally in N2 environments. The obtained TGA data was used for a kinetic analysis, assuming the distributed activation energy model (DAEM). The results of the kinetic analysis were compared with that from our previous study assuming a five pseudo-components model.
