Pyrolysis based biorefinery

Pyrolysis oil is the product of heating of biomass without oxygen. Pyrolysis technology in its most traditional and simple form is heat oak or beech resulting in a dense smoke for smoking fish or meat. Cooling the dense smoke results in an oil called pyrolysis oil. Biomass is a natural product that contains carbon. Examples are wood, straw and other organic residues or by-products of agriculture [...]

Gaseous biofuels from biomass and waste

The importance of gasification can be derived from the history; the existence of fuel gas was a ‘catalyst’ for the development of the gas engine. All over the world, we use the term gas pedal, even in diesel cars. Biomass gasification is an endothermic thermal conversion technology where a solid fuel composed of the main elements carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, is converted into a combustible gas [...]
