BIO FLAM Report Summary

Project ID: ENK5-CT-1999-00004
Funded under: FP5-EESD

Model for biomass devolatilisation

The result is the parameters and procedure for the application of the CPD (Chemical Percolation Devolatilisation) model to describe the devolatilisation of biomass materials. The CPD model was developed in the USA and is one of the three more fundamental models to describe the pyrolisis process.

The result of the Bioflam project is the adaptation of this model for the case of biomass materials. The model is used for the three main biomass components e.g. Lignin, cellulose and hemi-cellulose. Based on models for the structure of these components, parameters were derived for the CPD model and these are made available in the open literature for use by other researchers and engineers.
