This study was carried out to investigate combustion characteristics of moso bamboo, including outer layer (OB), middle layer (MB) and inner layer (IB) and bamboo leaves (BL), respectively. The results showed that combustion characteristics of moso bamboo were similar to other biomass materials. There were two separate peaks in the combustion process; the first peak corresponding to combustion of volatile matters and the second peak corresponding to combustion of biochar. Compared to OB, MB and IB, BL had a worse fuel quality with higher H/C and O/C value, N and S content, ash content and lower combustion efficiency. Furthermore, BL had a higher slagging index and MB had a higher fouling index. These combustion characteristics of bamboo should be taken into consideration to efficiently design and operate the combustion systems when directly used for fuel production.
