Biomass is a renewable energy source in that the energy that it contains comes from the sun. One of sources of biomass is municipal solid waste. The final goal of the study is to develop the combustor for the micro gas-turbine using the biomass as a fuel. Here, it is very important to remove ashes (10μm or more in diameter) in the gas because its size affects the strength or erosion of the turbine blade. The aim of the present study is to observe the combustion phenomena relevant to a mixture of waste liquid and waste oil. Emphasis is placed on the ash size which is produced from the combustion chamber developed here. It is found that the ash size obtained at the exit of the combustor is less than 10 μm.
