Catalytic stepwise pyrolysis of packaging plastic waste
Abstract In this paper the combination of catalytic and stepwise pyrolysis is explored. A mixture of polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) andExpand
Pyrolysis behavior of different type of materials contained in the rejects of packaging waste sorting plants.
In this paper rejected streams coming from a waste packaging material recovery facility have been characterized and separated into families of products of similar nature in order to determine theExpand
Possibilities and limits of pyrolysis for recycling plastic rich waste streams rejected from phones recycling plants.
The possibilities and limits of pyrolysis as a means of recycling plastic rich fractions derived from discarded phones have been studied. Two plastic rich samples (⩾80wt% plastics) derived fromExpand
Upgrading of pyrolysis vapours from biomass carbonization
Abstract Slow pyrolysis of biomass at high temperatures yields a solid product (biochar or charcoal) with useful properties to be used as a reducing agent in metallurgical applications. In suchExpand
Avoiding tar formation in biocoke production from waste biomass
Abstract This paper focuses in avoiding tar formation and in optimizing pyrolysis gas (maximizing H 2 and CO) in the production of biocoke from waste lignocellulosic biomass. In order to obtainExpand
Influence of temperature and residence time in the pyrolysis of woody biomass waste in a continuous screw reactor
Abstract The aim of this paper is to study the influence of temperature and residence time in the quality of the charcoal obtained in the pyrolysis of biomass waste, in order to be used as a reducingExpand
Upgrading of chlorinated oils coming from pyrolysis of plastic waste
Abstract The objective of this paper is the upgrading of chlorinated oils coming from the pyrolysis of mixed plastic waste, in order to use them as fuel or feedstock for refineries. Two differentExpand
Biomass Pyrolysis Solids as Reducing Agents: Comparison with Commercial Reducing Agents
Biomass is one of the most suitable options to be used as renewable energy source due to its extensive availability and its contribution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Pyrolysis ofExpand
Evaluation of HZSM-5 Zeolite as Cracking Catalyst for Upgrading the Vapours Generated in the Pyrolysis of an Epoxy-Carbon Fibre Waste Composite
In this paper the performance of HZSM-5 zeolite in the thermo-catalytic treatment of the vapours and gases evolved from the pyrolysis of a carbon fibre-epoxy waste composite has been evaluated. TheExpand
Empiric model for the prediction of packaging waste pyrolysis yields
The yield and characteristics of packaging waste pyrolysis products depend on the composition of the input material. The aim of this study is to predict the yield of the different pyrolysis fractionsExpand
