In this vein, fast pyrolysis of biomass and upgrading of the product is deemed to have potential as a technology solution. The objective of this review is to provide an update on recent laboratory research and commercial developments in fast pyrolysis and upgrading techniques. Fast pyrolysis is a relatively mature technology and is on the verge of commercialisation. While upgrading of bio-oils is currently confined to laboratory and pilot scale, an increased understanding of upgrading processes has been achieved in recent times.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2011 Elsevier||Keywords:||Pyrolysis;Biomass;Biofuel;Upgrading;Bio-oil;Thermal conversion||DOI:||10.1016/j.rser.2011.07.035||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
