Biomass conversion Pyrolytic Decomposition of Non-Edible Biomaterials

Product

Biomass

Conversion

- Diversity

- Seasonal and disseminated occurrence

  • Near to the location

  • of biomass generation

  • Using the best conversion

  • technology (economy and product requirement)

  • - Locally used energy (heat or electric)

  • Transportable energy

  • Intermediates and chemicals

Liquid fuel

- biodiesel

- ”green” diesel

- FT fuel

- lower alcohols

Produces

- vegetable oil

- algae oil

- energy plants

Biological

- aerobic and anaerobic fermentation

- enzymatic hydrolysis

Chemical (catalytic)

-transesterification of oils

- hydrorefining of oils

- processing the products of other conversions, e.g.

gasification of pyrolysis oil to

H2/CO mixture

Pipeline gas

- bio-methane

  • Wastes

  • - lignocellulosic

  • - communal

  • - industrial

  • animal

  • by-products

  • Thermal

  • - combustion

  • - gasification

  • Pyrolysis

  • (CO2 negative)

Electric energy

- fuel cell

- Gas turbine/generator

- Gas engine/generator


Pyrolysis Pyrolytic Decomposition of Non-Edible Biomaterials

Char

(~35 wt%)

Pyrolysis gas

(~65 wt%)

Biomass

(e.g. Meat and Bone Meal)

~85 %-a

condensable

Pyrolysis (~450 – 500 0C)

Pyrolysis oil

  • Not suitable as fuel:

  • relatively low energy density

  • - chemical instability

  • corrosivity

  • immiscible with conventional fuels

  • environmentally hazardous

  • emission (e.g. NOx)

Reforming is needed!


Composition of pyrolysis oils Pyrolytic Decomposition of Non-Edible Biomaterials

Pyrolysis oil of plant origin

(e.g. from agricultural and forestry residues)

Pyrolysis oil of animal origin*

(e.g. from meat and bone meal (MBM))

C, wt%: 60

H, wt% 7

O, wt% 32

N, wt% 1

-----------------------------------------

Density (kg/dm3): 1.12

Heating value (MJ/kg) 21.3

(Zhang et al., Bioresource Technology 96 (2005) 545

C, wt%: 74

H, wt% 12

O, wt% 5

N, wt% 9

-----------------------------------------

Density (kg/dm3): 0.97

Heating value (MJ/kg) 36.5

  • Reforming:

  • - Catalytic steam reforming to H2/COmixture

  • Catalytic cracking and decarboxylation

  • Catalytic esterification

  • Reforming:

  • - Catalytic steam reforming to H2/COmixture

  • Hydrotreating (heteroatom removal)

*

  • ~20 million tons of animal by-products in the EU 27 countries

  • environmentally dangerous waste (microbiological re- and trans-contamination)

  • incineration is not favored (fly ash, emission of furans, dioxins and NOx) → pyrolysis


Catalytic steam reforming Pyrolytic Decomposition of Non-Edible Biomaterials of pyrolysis oils

CxHyNvOz + xH2O → xCO + (y/2+x-z)H2 + (v/2)N2 [1]

CO + H2O CO2 + H2 [2]

[1] highly endotherm

[2] slightly exotherm

Products: H2,CO,CO2,N2, (CH4)


Catalytic steam reforming Pyrolytic Decomposition of Non-Edible Biomaterials of pyrolysis oil obtained from MBM


Catalytic Pyrolytic Decomposition of Non-Edible Biomaterialshydrotreating of pyrolysis oils

CxHyNvOz + nH2 → CxH2x+2 + zH2O + vNH3

(heteroatom removal via HDO and HDN)

Unattractive process for pyrolysis oils of plant origin:

- high H2 demand due to the high oxygen content (>30 wt%)

- useless H2O is formed as by-product

Feasible process for pyrolysis oils of animal origin:

- relatively low H2 demand

- valuable NH3 is formed as by-product
