Calorific values (higher heating values, HHV) of 16 biomass samples obtained from different Turkish sources were determined experimentally and calculated from both ultimate and proximate analyses. The HHV (MJ kg(-1)) of the biomass samples as a function of fixed carbon (FC, wt%) was calculated from the following equation:
