A bench scale biomass flash pyrolysis reactor has been developed in co-operation by AUA and CRES during previous EC projects. The major novelty concept of this reactor configuration, virtually a Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB), is the recirculation of pyrolysis by-product char in the lower portion of the CFB, where it is combusted, providing thus the energy requirements to carry out the biomass devolatilisation process. The main objective of the current project was to carry out further improvements as far as the CFB reactor stability, performance, product consistency, product characteristics and scale-up are concerned.
