A comparison of fast and intermediate processes is given. New developments in technology are described for intermediate pyrolysis and an advanced integrative combination of biomass based processes is proposed.
combined heat and power (CHP)
Pyrolysis in general terms is a thermo chemical conversion in the absence of oxygen. Pyrolysis reactors have various designs and the pyrolysis process can be categorised according to the process conditions as fast, intermediate or slow. Each type of pyrolysis can deal with different types of biomass, but very often the shape and ...
