Effect of Pyrolysis Temperature on Bio-Oil Production from Vacuum Pyrolysis of Waste from Wood Industry
In this study, wood industry waste (sawdust from pine wood) was used as model biomass to study the properties
of bio-oil obtained by vacuum pyrolysis. The effect of temperature between the range of 300 and 700 °C on gas, liquid and
solid products was investigated. The maximum bio-oil yield of 52.1 wt.% was obtained at the final pyrolysis temperature of
500 °C under vacuum atmosphere. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) analysis was performed to characterize
the organic functional groups in the bio-oil. The results of this study show that the bio-oil obtained from waste wood, such as
pine wood sawdust was provided as an alternative fuels and chemical feedstocks.
