Activated carbons prepared from wood particleboard wastes: characterisation and phenol adsorption capacities.
The problems of valorisation of particleboard wastes on one hand, and contamination of aqueous effluents by phenolic compounds on the other hand, are simultaneously considered in this work.Expand

Detailed kinetic study of anisole pyrolysis and oxidation to understand tar formation during biomass combustion and gasification
Abstract Anisole was chosen as the simplest surrogate for primary tar from lignin pyrolysis to study the gas-phase chemistry of methoxyphenol conversion. Methoxyphenols are one of the main precursorsExpand

Synthesis gas production by biomass pyrolysis: Effect of reactor temperature on product distribution
Abstract This paper describes mass, C, H, and O balances for wood chips pyrolysis experiments performed in a tubular reactor under conditions of rich H 2 gas production (700–1000 °C) and forExpand

Thermal removal of nitrogen species from wood waste containing urea formaldehyde and melamine formaldehyde resins.
The removal of nitrogen from wood board waste through a low temperature pyrolysis (523-573 K) is investigated with two analytical methods. The kinetic study of the thermal behaviour of wood board andExpand

Evolution of Aromatic Tar Composition in Relation to Methane and Ethylene from Biomass Pyrolysis-Gasification
Tar reduction and monitoring is the major stake for gasification processes. Pyrolysis is the precursor mechanism of the gasification of solid fuels and tar production. The evolution of gas and tarExpand

Mechanisms and Kinetics of Methane Thermal Conversion in a Syngas
In order to optimize H2 and CO production from biomass gasification, the thermal decomposition of methane in a reconstituted syngas was investigated in a tubular reactor at 130 kPa, for a gasExpand

In Situ Analysis of Biomass Pyrolysis by High Temperature Rheology in Relations with 1H NMR
The extent of softening during biomass pyrolysis is of high importance for fundamentals and reactors design but was not yet quantified in situ. We provide the first in situ rheology and 1H NMRExpand

Comparison of two methods of measuring wood pyrolysis tar.
Two methods for the sampling and analysis of tar produced from wood pyrolysis were compared. The first method used a conventional cold-trapping technique in solvent-filled impingers followed byExpand
