Title: Chapter 8: Pyrolysis of Biomass for Aviation Fuel

Abstract

Pyrolysis, the breaking down of organic material using heat and the absence of oxygen, is a method that has been widely researched for the production of liquid fuels. In this chapter, we review the feedstocks typically used for pyrolysis, the properties and the composition of the liquid fraction (termed 'bio-oil') obtained, the studies in which pyrolysis has been used in an attempt to increase the bio-oil yield, and how the bio-oil has been upgraded to fuel-like molecules. We also discuss the viability of pyrolysis to produce jet fuel hydrocarbons.
