Abstract: <i>Casuarina equisetifolia</i> L. and <i>Lantana camara </i>L. leaf litter, sugarcane bagasse and empty oil palm fruit bunch (<i>Elaeis guineensis</i> Jacq.) were converted into charcoal using carbonization process. An increase in temperature from 200°C to 400°C decreased charcoal yield gradually in all samples. Energy content in fresh biomass was lower than pyrolysed charcoal.Calorific value of fresh biomass and pyrolysed charcoal, respectively, was maximum in <i>C. equisetifolia</i> L. leaf litter (18.48 MJ/kg and 29.89 MJ/kg) and minimum in oil palm fruit bunch (16.96MJ/kg & 18.46MJ/kg).
