  1. 1. Pyrolysis of biomass. Rapid pyrolysis at high temperature. Slow pyrolysis for active carbon preparation

    Author : Rolando Zanzi; KTH; []
    Keywords : rapid pyrolysis; pyrolysis; wood; agricultural residues; biomass; char; tar; gas; char reactivity; gasification; steam; active carbon;

    Abstract : Pyrolysis of biomass consists of heating solid biomass inthe absence of air to produce solid, liquid and gaseous fuels.In the first part of this thesis rapid pyrolysis of wood(birch) and some agricultural residues (olive waste, sugarcanebagasse and wheat straw in untreated and in pelletized form) athigh temperature (800ºC–1000ºC) is studied ina free fall reactor at pilot scale.

  2. 2. Principles of Biomass Pyrolysis with Emphasis on the Formation of the Nitrogen-Containing Gases HNCO, HCN and NH3

    Author : Karl-Martin Hansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : pyrolysis; depolymerisation; NH3; HCN; crack formation; fragmentation; combustion time; pyrolysis time; HNCO; biomass; shrinkage;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates some aspects of the pyrolysis and combustion of biomass. The emphasis of the work is on the formation of nitrogen-containing species under pyrolysis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Drying and Pyrolysis of Logs of Wood

    Author : Jenny Larfeldt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : structural changes; heat transfer properties; pyrolysis; drying; single particle; wood;

    Abstract : This work concerns log firing in small-scale boilers for house heating, which in Sweden meets a heat demand of 12 TWh a year. In boilers used for domestic central heating in the sizes of 10 to 30 kW the predominant combustion technique is grate firing. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling of the pyrolysis of large wood particles

    Author : Michel Bellais; Krister Sjöström; Björn Zethraeus; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; drying; modelling; pyrolysis; shrinkage; wood; Chemical energy engineering; Kemisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : Wood is an interesting alternative to fossil fuels. It is CO2-neutral and widely available. However it is a difficult fuel to handle which features a low energy content. Thus technologies for wood thermal conversion need to be improved. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pyrolysis profiles and global kinetics of tropical biomass : coconut and cashew nut shells

    Author : Alberto Júlio Tsamba; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermogravimetry; cashew nut cocnut shells; pyrolysis; kinetics; Other materials science; Övrig teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Biomass has been recognised as renewable and environmentally friendly source of energy since decades. Tropical biomasses which are available in large quantities as residues in Latin America, Africa and Asia, have high energy potential for exploitation through thermochemical conversion process, as pyrolysis, gasification or combustion.
