Abstract: Significance of developing energy from waste biomass has grown extremely high in recent decades. Prosopis Juliflora (PJ – Organic) is a waste plant which was grown in agricultural landfills and Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP – Inorganic) is procured from composite industry waste are collected for this work, which is abundant in quantity. Gasification are the adequate method for harvesting energy efficiently from organic and inorganic biomass. The objective of this research was to conclude the proximate and ultimate analysis of Prosopis Juliflora and Fibre-reinforced plastic to study the potential for thermo-chemical conversion process. Thermo-gravimetric analysis were observed at heating rates of 20, 30 and 40 ºC/min in inert (nitrogen) atmosphere with gas flow protection rate of 40 ml/min was analyzed for PJ, FRP and PJ+FRP (50:50).
