Abstract

Haloclean a performance enhanced low temperature pyrolysis for biomass developed by Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and Sea Marconi Is closing the gap between classical and fast pyrolysis approaches. For pyrolysis of straw (chaffed-, finely ground and pellets) temperature ranges between 320 to 420°C and residence times of only 1 to 5 minutes can be realized. Liquid yields of up to 45 wt-% and 35 wt-% of solids are possible. Solid yields can be increased up to 73 wt-% while loosing 4.5 % of the feed energy by pyrolysis gases only. Toxicity tests of the fractions do not show relevant numbers.
