Abstract

Publishable final report of project JOR3-CT98-0253.

The primary objective of this project has been to support demonstration of a bio-energy scheme, where bio fuel oil (BFO) is employed as boiler or engine power plant fuel. At this stage quality improvement of the BFO is technically the critical factor related to pyrolysis liquid production. The principal technologies studied were hot filtration of pyrolysis vapours coupled to a pyrolyser, and preparation of micro-emulsion from BFO. The first aims at reducing solids content and alkali metals in BFO. The latter aims at enabling use of BFO in existing equipment without major modifications.
