Abstract

Liquid biofuels have several advantages over solid or gaseous fuels. Pyrolysis liquids produced from wood fuels have been estimated low cost, but their fuel quality needs improvement. The aim is to use pyrolysis liquid to replace light fuel oil in boilers. Forestry residues and sawdust are estimated as feasible biomass feedstocks for liquid fuel production. Production of pyrolysis liquid from these biofuels is described and liquid fuel properties are discussed.
