In this study, co-pyrolysis of wood biomass and waste tyres was carried out in a fixed-bed reactor using different proportions in the feedstock. The aim of this study was to test if an improvement exists on the properties of the condensable liquid fraction (less oxygen and water contents and higher heating value) when co-pyrolysis of these two materials is conducted. The possible synergic effects which can lead to an improve in the properties of the...
