About this book

This book presents a collection of studies on state-of-art techniques developed specifically for the conversion of biomass to chemical products by means of pyrolysis, which is widely applicable to the valorization of biomass. In addition to discussing the fundamentals and mechanisms for producing bio-oils, chemicals, gases and biochar via pyrolysis processes, it outlines key reaction parameters and reactor configurations for converting many types of biomass into chemical products. All chapters were prepared by internationally respected experts in their field, and provide readers with a broad range of perspectives on cutting-edge applications. The book is an ideal reference guide for academic researchers and industrial engineers in the fields of natural renewable materials, biorefinery of lignocellulose, biofuels, and environmental engineering. It also offers a comprehensive reference resource for university students in the fields of chemical engineering, material science and environmental engineering.
