The use of residual biomass arising from urban green pruning for energy production is a current and interesting subject for three main reasons: to achieve the aims of the Kyoto Protocol, to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels and to manage the urban green in a sustainable way. The aim of this study is a qualitative and quantitative analysis of waste wood biomass from urban green pruning in Viterbo in order to use it for energy production. Moisture, ash, C, H, N contents and Calorific Value analysis are carried out. Starting from the results analysis, two energy uses are proposed: wood-chips boiler and gasification. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
