Abstract

original image

From biomass to tomorrow's biofuels: Pyrolysis oils, obtained by fast pyrolysis of solid biomass, comprise a wide range of oxygenated compounds. It is proposed that after adequate upgrading, these oils may be fed into large-scale refinery units to obtain fuels. Thus, the co-feeding of a model hydrocarbon (C8) and model oxygenated molecules was studied in a fixed-bed catalytic reactor using an industrial fluid catalytic cracking catalyst.
