Production of Biocoal by the Pyrolysis of Biomass

  • 1 Accesses

Abstract

Effective use of biomass has recently received special attention. Pyrolysis is of great interest among the biomass conversion processes. The pyrolysis technology allows the production of biocoal (biochar), which can replace fossil energy fuels. Biocoal can also be converted into liquid fuel for direct use in vehicles and for the replacement of petroleum products (gasoline, aviation kerosene, and diesel fuel). In recent years, biocoal has been increasingly used in the agricultural industry as a high-quality complex fertilizer with unique properties.
