Value addition to rice straw through pyrolysis in hydrogen and nitrogen environments.


Pyrolysis of rice straw has been carried out under hydrogen atmosphere at 300, 350, 400 and 450 °C and pressures of 1, 10, 20, 30 and 40 bar and in nitrogen atmosphere, experiments have been carried out at the same temperatures. It has been observed that the optimum process conditions for hydropyrolysis are 400 °C and 30 bar pressure and for slow pyrolysis… (More)
