Abstract

The use of catalysts in fast pyrolysis is a suitable measure to improve the stability of liquids with respect to viscosity and water content. The understanding of the catalyst´s behaviour in fast pyrolysis is not yet understood.
Selectivity, reactivity and specificity have still to be investigated. Models for various fast pyrolysis reactor configurations were developed and allow the prediction of the yields of the three main products oil, gas, and char. However, the performance of the models should be further improved.
One of the most important result from the project was the addition of crude pyrolysis liquids to adhesives to substitute expensive phenol in resin formulations.
