Abstract [en]

Pyrolitic conversion of lignocellulosic biomass is a promising field to achieve the energy utilization and the significant reduction in CO2 emission. Both the spruce and pine are the main species in Swedish forests. During gasification process, water scrubbing system is widely adopted due to its simple and economical structure. The understanding of the releasing of tar components is quite important for the operation and gas cleaning system. Thus, pyrolysis study of spruce and pine sawdust was conducted in a batch-type reactor at 400°C, 500°C and 600°C. Yields of pyrolytic liquid, gas, and char were calculated. Pyrolytic liquids were characterized by GC-MS. Kinetic study of individual gas component was carried out. The element analysis of chars was conducted. And the energy distribution in the char, gas, and liquid, were also presented in the paper. The optimized pyrolysis conditions will achieve the oil upgrading and improve the energy utilization efficiency.
