Fast pyrolysis utilizes biomass to produce a product that is used both as an energy source and a feedstock for chemical production. Considerable efforts have been made to convert wood biomass to liquid fuels and chemicals since the oil crisis in mid-1970s. This review focuses on the recent developments in the wood pyrolysis and reports the characteristics of the resulting bio-oils, which are the main products of fast wood pyrolysis. Virtually any form of biomass can be considered for fast… 
Pyrolysis of Woody Biomass for Sustainable Bio-oil
Abstract Fast pyrolysis utilizes biomass to produce a product that is used both as an energy source and a feedstock for chemical production. Considerable efforts have been made to convert wood
Fast Pyrolysis of Agricultural Wastes for Bio-fuel and Bio-char
Fast pyrolysis is a thermo-chemical conversion method to produce liquid fuel from biomass. This process involves the rapid thermal decomposition of organic compounds in the absence of oxygen. The
Slow Pyrolysis of Rice Straw: Analysis of Biochar, Bio-Oil and Gas
Biomass is the term attributed to any renewable resource derived from organic matter that can be used in energy production. Agricultural production generates residues that are of great importance for
Fast Pyrolysis of Agricultural Wastes in a Fluidized Bed Reactor
Solid biomass can be converted into liquid fuel through fast pyrolysis, which is convenient to be stored and transported with potential to be used as a fossil oil substitute. In China, agricultural
Review of catalytic pyrolysis of biomass for bio-oil
Pyrolysis utilizes biomass to produce a liquid product bio-oil which is widely used as a potential energy source and a low-cost feedstock for chemical production. Considerable efforts have been made
Vacuum pyrolysis of woody biomass to bio-oil production
Woody biomass is an important resource that can be utilized to obtain liquid fuel. Bio-oil is an encouraging renewable energy source due to finite fossil resources. In this study, vacuum pyrolysis of
