This paper presents the results of studying the influence of the biomass moisture content on basic pyrolysis parameters. The studies have established that the yield of biomass pyrolysis products strongly depends on the moisture content of the raw material. The paper gives graphs of the dependence of the mass yield of liquid pyrolysis products on the process temperature and biomass moisture content.
