Experimental analysis of the influence of wood biomass on the composition of pyrolysis products of mixtures based on crushed coal ("Lignite" (3B)) and fine wood (lumber sawing waste) has been performed. Ash residue composition of the main components of fuels and mixtures based on them has been determined experimentally using X-Supreme 8000 element analysis device. Fuel mixture samples were used with a percentage of coal / wood - 100 % / 0 %, 90 % / 10 %, 75 % / 25 %, 50 % / 50 by weight. The experiments have been performed in an inert gas (Argon) environment at temperatures of 400 °C, 600 °C, and 800 °C. It has been established that during pyrolysis of twocomponent fuels based on 3B grade coal and dispersed wood biomass, there is growth of calcium and aluminum sulfates in the solid products of thermal decomposition of such mixtures (ash) due to a complex of reactions between pyrolysis products of coals and wood when the concentration of the wood component in the mixture changes from 10% to 50 %. Results of experimental studies allow substantiating previously formulated hypothesis about the mechanism of sequestering of sulfur oxides formed during coal pyrolysis as a result of interaction with gaseous products of thermal decomposition of wood and solid products of coal pyrolysis.
