Heat Transfer Behaviour Of A Wheat Straw Pellet Undergoing Pyrolysis Teresa Martí-Rosselló , Jun Li , Leo Lue, Oskar Karlström, Anders Brink


Pyrolysis is widely used to convert biomass to liquid biofuel. It is also an interesting technology at an industrial scale, which is a motivation to seek an increase in process efficiency. The pyrolysis of large biomass particles differs from the pyrolysis of fine particles because they do not heat and decompose homogeneously. In this work, experimental data for the pyrolysis of a wheat straw pellet and a single particle model are presented. Furthermore, the key parameters controlling the internal temperature distribution are discussed.
