Title: Pyrolysis of sawdust in a conical spouted-bed reactor with a HZSM-5 catalyst

Abstract

The effect was studied of using an in-situ catalyst based on a HZSM-5 zeolite in flash pyrolysis with an inert gas (N{sub 2}) of pinus insignis sawdust in a conical spouted-bed reactor in the 400--500 C range and for a gas residence time of 50 ms. The use of the catalyst increases the yield of gases and decreases the yields of liquid and char. Likewise, the yield of CO{sub 2} decreases, whereas the yield of C{sub 4{minus}} hydrocarbons increases (15.9 wt. % at 450 C). The catalyst is efficient for partial deoxygenation of the liquid product.
