Mwaniki JM, Mbugua SN, Gituauki KM. "Biomass fuel from chamomile waste flowers." International Journal of BioChemiPhysics. 2005;Vol 14(1):1-9.


The waste chamomile flowers from solvent extraction of fresh chamomile flowers. were compacted into cylindrical shapes with and without added binder (Calcium Sulphate), then carbonised using an electric oven to avoid contamination. The gross fuel content of the carbonised biomass fuel determined using a constant volume bomb calorimeter was found to be 29,379 KJ kg-1, while the Net Calorific value was calculated as 26,661 KJ Kg-1.
