Technical Scale Fixed-Bed Pyrolysis of Several Biomass Species: Deep Characterization of Solid Bio-Char

A. Dieguez-Alonso, A. Anca-Couce, N. Zobel & F. Behrendt
Consolidated pyrolysis application in industry requires deeper control and optimization of the process. For that on line characterization of the process, regarding products distribution and composition in similar conditions as the ones encountered in industrial applications is needed. In this study, slow pyrolysis of thermally thick particles in a technical scale fixed bed reactor is carried out under several pyrolysis conditions. Different raw materials are used: pine wood chips, beech wood spheres, cellulose waste and...
