A PYROLYSIS PLANT FOR BIOMASS
Laboratory tests were the basis for the determination of the parameters for a process to autothermically pyrolyze agricultural and forestry waste. The data derived therefrom and additional tests in bench-scale equipment made it possible to design and build a pilot plant in which the material is pyrolyzed in a fluidized bed of self-produced charcoal. Primarily existing problems in cooling the gas stream from the reactor and separating the oil aerosols from the gas were overcome and a viable solution was found. The pilot plant is able to eliminate all the aqueous condensates that are formed at any pyrolysis of biomass within the process without any environmental impact. This ability, however, is limited to certain process parameters that must be observed to guarantee operation without highly contaminated waste water. These limiting process parameters are shown in the report.
