Abstract [en]

Pyrolysis of Manchurian ash (Fraxinus mandshurica Rupr.) sawdust with four zeolite molecular sieve catalysts was performed on a thermogravimetric analyzer coupled with a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer. Pyrolysis of pure Manchurian ash and three main components, viz. cellulose, xylan, lignin, was also carried out as reference. The four zeolite catalysts investigated in this study (viz. HZSM-5, H-, USY and Na-Y) all catalyze the dehydration reaction, restrain the release of volatiles, and obviously promote the final residue yields. Y-type catalysts show the most evident catalytic effect, such as restraining the formation of aldehydes, acids, and ethers, and promoting that of isoalkanes and aromatics. The preferred catalyst should have both high activity for deoxygenating and selectivity for hydrocarbon production.
