Modelling of an Integrated Fast Pyrolysis Process with Aspen Plus

K. Onarheim, S. Gören & Y. Solantausta
The concept of fast pyrolysis of biomass for the production of bio oil integrated into a fluidized bed power boiler has been studied. The purpose has been to assess the performance of the integrated plant and to investigate the cost penalties to the CHP plant with an integrated fast pyrolysis process compared to a stand­alone CHP plant. A model simulation of the integrated fast pyrolysis process has been built using the Aspen Plus simulation software....
