This article investigates the combustion characteristics and combustion kinetics of Eriobotrya japonica stones by thermogravimetric analysis. The combustion experiments were conducted at heating rates of 5 and 50 degrees C/min in the presence of oxygen. The reaction degree, the activation energy, and the exponential factor of the combustion process were calculated by employing the Coats and Redfern kinetic model.
