Summary of "Pyrolysis of Chinese chestnut shells: Effects of temperature and Fe presence on product composition."

To understand the role of Fe on biomass pyrolysis, Fe-catalyzed biomass pyrolysis in a fixed-bed reactor was investigated. It was found that the introduction of Fe increased the yields of gases and solid char while decreasing the yield of liquid oil. With increasing temperature, Hydrogen content in gaseous products obtained in the presence of Fe increased, while that of CH decreased. In the case of liquid oil, the introduction of Fe promoted the formation of ketones and acids at 400-600 °C, and these species became dominant (67.51%) at 700-800 °C. Finally, solid char obtained in the presence of Fe at 700-800 °C featured a larger pore volume, specific surface area, and graphitization degree, and was characterized by a mesoporous structure with narrow pores size distribution (∼5.3 nm).
