Pyrolysis oils are the cheapest liquid fuel derived from lignocellulosic biomass. However, pyrolysis oils are a very poor quality liquid fuel that cannot be used in conventional diesel and internal combustion engines. In this paper we show that hydrogen, alkanes (ranging from C1 to C6) and polyols (ethylene glycol, 1,2-propanediol, 1,4-butanediol) can be produced from the aqueous fraction of wood-derived pyrolysis oils (bio-oils). The pyrolysis oil was first phase separated into aqueous and non… CONTINUE READING
