Economic Evaluation of a Concept for the Production of Pyrolysis Oil from Straw Directly in the Field

J. Westermeyer & T. Schulzke
Biomass from agricultural residues and food production will become a major source for energy and chemicals production. Straw as an example for agricultural residues­though abundantly available­occurs vastly distributed and its prize is dominated by logistic cost. By converting straw into pyrolysis oil directly on the field this logistic cost can be completely saved. As major outcome of the presented study the intermediate product from ablative flash pyrolysis can be delivered to subsequent utilization plants at...
