Pyrolysis is a well-known process for biomass upgrading, and a great deal of works are available about it. However, they focus on conventional lignocellulosic samples, and the information about any other less common samples, while still valuable, is very difficult to find. For instance, Brazilian ginseng (Pfaffia glomerata) is a feedstock without hemicellulose and a […]
Biomass is a renewable substance formed by three solid components (hemicellulose, cellulose and lignin) in which water and oil can be also present. Kinetics use an auto-catalytic model because it has been used successfully by other authors to reproduce the characteristic degradation in cellulosic materials.
