The energy efficiency of torrefaction of biomass to stabilised biochar was studied using conventional (slow) and microwave (low temperature) pyrolysis. Conventional pyrolysis is approximately twice as energy efficient as microwave pyrolysis, in terms of the energy required to process a unit of feedstock. However, this is more than compensated for by the high energy content of the condensable and gaseous co-products from microwave pyrolysis, as these can be utilised to generate the electricity… CONTINUE READING
