Bamboo, one of the fast­rotation plant in Asia, is a good agent for absorbing CO2 when proceeds photosynthesis. In this study, a fast pyrolysis technology with a bubbling fluidized­bed reactor was applied to convert Makino bamboo sawdust into pyrolysis liquid and charcoal powder. Averaged product yields of pyrolysis liquid and charcoal were 60.8 wt% and 21.8 wt%, respectively. The pyrolysis liquid contained a lot of acetic acid, hydroxyacetone and acetaldehyde may be used as a...
