Thermogravimetric analyzer had been occupied to investigate the behavior of co-combustion between microalgae Spirulina platensis and synthetic waste. The powder of microalgae and synthetic waste were mixed in the same ratio of 50/50. Around 10 mg of the sample was heated up in the chamber under air atmosphere flowrate of 100 ml/min at a heating rate of 10 °C/min. The results showed that the sample blend is undergoing thermal degradation in the three stages. The most massive reaction occurred in the second stage in which around 74% of the mass degraded and combusted. The activation energy in the main combustion reaction zone according to the method of Horowitz–Metzger was 57.77 kJ/mol.
