Abstract

The effect of temperature on the torrefaction (mild pyrolysis) of peat was studied. The process was carried out under anaerobic conditions at atmospheric pressure and a temperature of 230–300°C. It was established that an increase in the temperature from 230 to 270°C leads to a certain decrease in the yield of biocoal and an increase in the gas formation. However, in this case, the fraction of carbon in the material increases by 10%. As a result, the calorific value of solid fuel increases to 25–26 MJ/kg. The process is characterized by a high carbon efficiency (about 90%)
