Moderate temperature decomposition of lignocellulose from Parkia biglobosa fruit husk has been conducted to determine the effects of temperature and biomass - catalyst ratio. The rate of the gas product formation followed first order kinetics. The functional groups and chemicals compositions present in the bioliquid obtained at the various temperatures were identified by GC/MS. Analysis of the residue (biochar) showed the presence of micro and macronutrients needed by plants. The biogas was composed of carbon monoxide, methane, oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide.
