This study carried out pyrolytic conversion of cocoa pod husk in a refurbished fixed bed type 17.4 litres capacity electric thermal reactor. The process was studied by heating 1 kg of dried sample at an average size of 20 mm x 30 mm x 1.9 mm and moisture content of 13.78% at four different temperatures (300 0C, 400 0C, 500 0C and 600 0C) using two electrical heating coils of 2.5 kW each. Bio-oil and bio-gas were produced and characterized. The average heating values of bio-oil and bio-gas were… CONTINUE READING
