432 Pyrolysis of Biomass

Tuesday, November 15, 2016: 3:15 PM - 5:45 PM
Franciscan B (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
This session will focus on chemistry and reaction engineering of biomass pyrolysis. This includes pyrolysis chemistry of individual biomass-derived polymers (e.g. cellulose), reaction-transport models of biomass particles, and reactor design for pyrolysis of biomass.
