Track 8: Devolatilization

The Devolatilization process was studied using thermogravimetric (TG) analysis The recycling current study examined the impact of torrefaction on the devolatilization properties of three lignocellulosic biomass feedstocks with recycling varying degrees of torrefaction together with their parent fuel, a palm oil manufacturing byproduct called palm kernel shell. For the study of reaction kinetics, TG data were combined with a kinetic model based on three parallel reactions that correspond to the chemical constituents of biomass. The outcomes showed that the examined biofuels' hemicellulose content was significantly decreased by the torrefaction process. TG analysis in conjunction with Fourier transforms infrared spectroscopy was used to characterize the volatile recycling compounds that developed during recycling biofuel devolatilization. The main volatile products' yields and emission characteristics were evaluated. It was possible to see specific linear connections between volatile yields and torrefaction levels
