Development of a circulating fluidized bed reactor model for the fast pyrolysis of biomass for process simulation
Biomass fast pyrolysis is one of the possible methods for converting solid biomass into liquid fuels or chemicals. Obtaining liquid fuels (especially for transportation) from renewable sources is of increasing interest due to concerns about economics and environmental impact of using depleting fossil fuels. The viability of fast pyrolysis pathways to liquid fuels is typically assessed by performing system-wide techno-economic analyses (TEAs) of biorefineries. This analysis requires system models capable of predicting fast pyrolysis products and process energy requirements from different biomass ...
