Understanding cellulose primary and secondary pyrolysis reactions to enhance the production of anhydrosaccharides and to better predict the composition of carbonaceous residues
Pyrolysis is a promising method to convert biomass into an oil that can be refined into valuable fuels and chemicals as well as a carbonaceous residue that can be converted into adsorbents. In pyrolysis, cellulose, the ...
CATALYTIC MICROWAVE PYROLYSIS OF BIOMASS FOR RENEWABLE PHENOLS AND FUELS
Bio-oil is an unstable intermediate and needs to be upgraded before its use. This study focused on improving the selectivity of bio-oilby catalytic pyrolysis of biomass using activated carbon (AC) catalysts. Firstly, the ...
Aromatic hydrocarbons production from catalyst assisted microwave pyrolysis of Douglas fir sawdust pellet
The aims of this dissertation were to understand the effects of zeolite as a catalyst for improving biofuel quality on in-situ microwave assisted catalytic pyrolysis and ex-situ catalytic cracking close coupled to microwave ...
