Final Report - MICROFUEL (Mobile microwave pyrolysis plant turns biomass into fuel locally)

Project ID: 218454
Funded under: FP7-SME


This is a press release of the MICROFUEL project. Funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), MICROFUEL's ultimate aim was to turn forestry waste into biomass. The project team developed a mobile pyrolysis plant. This prototype uses microwaves to turn forestry residue (i.e. wood waste) through flash pyrolysis into useful products (i.e. bio-oil and biochar).
