Fast pyrolysis technology can convert a wide range of difficult-to-handle biomass into a clean and uniform bio-oil, which is easy to store and transport.

Most applications have so far focused on the use of pyrolysis oil for energy purposes, but the Horizon 2020 project Bio4Products has developed a technology to divide pyrolysis oil into multiple fractions that could be used for material applications.

Many new products could be developed from pyrolysis oil, and this webinar will introduce some of the latest results from innovative companies and collaborations in Europe.
