Preliminary specifications for pyrolysis liquids

CEN`s Technical Board created the working group CEN/BT/WG 149 Liquid and Gaseous Alternative fuels in December 2002. The Swedish Standards Institute SIS assumed the responsibility for the secretariat of this WG, and VTT contributed initially in the work. In the longer term, CEN was recommended to prepare to start working also on the pyrolysis oil standards as alternative fuels for stationary applications. At the plenary meeting of CEN/TC 19 in June 2005 on standardization of liquid and gaseous alternative fuels the CEN/BT/WG 149 recommendations were included to the workplan.

Fuel oil specifications are proposed based on feedback from pyrolysis liquid end-users. Preliminary specifications for boiler use in three size classes were proposed in the proejct. A paper on specifications has been published in Energy & Fuels and reported in the project.
