Fast pyrolysis of biomass is one of the most promising technologies for converting biomass to liquid fuels. In some applications pyrolysis oil can replace fossil heating oil however a bottleneck for the conversion is the heterogeneity and potential for phase separation of fast pyrolysis oils upon storage. So far there is no standardized method for studying phase separation tendency of pyrolysis oils. This study introduces Turbiscan as a tool for studying the phase separation phenomenon...
