A biorefinery can be considered as the optimized performance of the use of biomass for materials, chemicals, and energy applications. Co-production of energy products or chemicals results from the requirement to dispose of wastes or byproducts in a satisfactory way. Fast pyrolysis of biomass as the core of a system to optimize the use of biomass was presented. The characteristics and advantages of pyrolysis forming the core of a biorefinery and some scenarios in which the unique features of fast pyrolysis can be effectively exploited were described. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the ACS Fuel Chemistry Meeting (Washington, DC Fall 2005).
