Torrefaction is an effective pretreatment method to improve the uniformity and quality of lignocellolosic biomass before further thermal processing (e.g., gasification, combustion). The objective of this study was to determine the impacts of torrefaction as a pretreatment before liquefaction. Wood chips were torrefied for 2 h at three different temperatures (230, 260, 290 °C) and then subjected to microwave-assisted liquefaction, as was the untreated wood control. The dielectric properties of… CONTINUE READING
