Rheological Characterisation of Biomass Fast Pyrolysis Oil

A. Bensakhria, A. Quignard, A. Preau & F. Broust
Fast pyrolysis offers a flexible and attractive way of converting biomass into a high energy density liquid, which can be stored and easily transported and handled for the production of heat, power, fuels or chemicals. In this work, several tests were carried out in order to determinate the rheological behaviour of a bio­oil obtained from the fast pyrolysis of wood chips, alone and mixed with char at different concentration. The effect of temperature and the...
