Since the apparition of the Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy in 2000, the animal residues from farms and slaughterhouses have become an important waste in Europe. Thermochemical treatment of meat and bone meal (MBM) with air in a fluidized bed reactor has been studied in this work as a potential and effective alternative for the management of this material. The aim of this work is to study the influence of important operating conditions (temperature and equivalence ratio...
