In this paper a practical test of an innovative on-line tar measuring system has been carried out using the reference standard for tar sampling (UNI CEN/TS 15439) and off-line analysis approach. Samples of common reed -collected in Inner Mongolia (China) -have been characterized by means of physical-chemical and thermal analysis. Several experimental tests have been performed in a bench scale pyrolysis apparatus (Free University of Bolzano, Italy) setting different process temperature (300-700°C) and a heating...
