Transformation of Nitrogen and Evolution of N-Containing Species during Algae Pyrolysis.

Transformation and evolution mechanisms of nitrogen during algae pyrolysis were investigated in depth with exploration of N-containing products under variant temperature. Results indicated nitrogen in algae is mainly in the form of protein-N (∼90%) with some inorganic-N. At 400-600 °C, protein-N in algae cracked first with algae pyrolysis and formed… (More)
