Emission of SO2 during combustion of fossil fuel had many environmental problem like acid rain, corrosion effect due to sulfur content in coal etc. in this regard study was made to investigate the potential of biomass for sulfur dioxide reduction. Three different biomass were blend with coal under different ratio like 90/10, 80/20, 70/30 and 60/40. The minimum emissions were observed during co-combustion of coal with -300ppm at ratio of LC80%+BTW 20% and maximum emission was sort out at 100%LC. It could be making easily decision on utilization of biomass with coal for favorable results regarding emission of SO2 from co-combustion process.
