Production of bio-oil and biochar from forest biomass

Testing a novel, mechanically fluidized bed pilot unit intended for the production of bio-oil and biochar from forest biomass

To reduce the economic and environmental cost of forestry residues transformation, in-situ energy densification is a powerful solution. To achieve efficient energy densification of forestry residues and transformation for industrial use, a new pyrolysis unit designed by the University of Western Ontario is used to produce low water content pyrolysis oil and high-quality biochar.
