Grains of truth: Catalytic pyrolysis is able to produce bio-oil with a low O and N content and high levels of aliphatics and H from spent grains by using activated serpentine and olivine at 430–460 °C. The biomass oxygenated vapours and aerosols interact in the macro- and mesoporous active sites with the naturally present metallic species to undergo decarboxylation with the formation of CO2 and C5–C6 O-depleted species.
