Data on the rapid, elemental and calorimetric analysis, such as ash melting behaviour and thermogravimetric profiles of Cuban biomass feedstocks are shown in order to assess their potential for bioenergy production. The studied biomasses are Jatropha curcas husk, Moringa oleifera husk, Dichrostachys cinerea, Ulva lactuca, Chaetomorpha gracilis and Sargassum fluitants. Seed, kernels or stems and algae were characterized by weight. Sample preparation and tests were established according to referenced German standards with particle size < 75 mm. Also thermogravimetric analyses have been performed at 10ºC/min in Argon atmosphere. Data in the paper are shown in Tables and Graphs. The data represent valuable information for further implementation of gasification or pyrolysis processes to using these biomasses.
