Flash Pyrolysis Properties of Algae and Lignin Residue

T.N. Trinh, P.A. Jensen, R.H. Sørensen, K. Dam-Johansen & H. Søren
A fast pyrolysis study on lignin and macroalgae (non¬conventional biomass) and wood and straw (conventional biomass) were carried out in a pyrolysis centrifugal reactor. The product distributions and energy recoveries were measured and compared among these biomasses. The fast pyrolysis of macroalgae showed a promising result with on yield of 54 wt% dry ash free basis (daf) and 78% energy recovery in the bio¬oil. The physiochemical properties of the bio¬oils were characterized with respect to...
