Oil, Char, and Gas

Brennan Pecha,  and Manuel Garcia-Perez     Biological Systems Engineering, Washington State University, Pullman, WA, USA

Abstract

Biomass pyrolysis is a very complex system, involving simultaneous solid heat transfer, solid phase chemical reactions, liquid evaporation and thermal ejection, liquid phase reactions, mass transfer of vapors through the solid matrix, and vapor phase reactions. The best place to begin understanding these interactions is to look at the structure and chemistry of lignocellulosic material. To truly understand pyrolysis, it is crucial to see that it is just one class of thermochemical conversion technologies. Thermochemical conversion is a term that means exactly ...
