Abstract

Pyrolysis of three peat types were studied with increasing pressure. Pressure increased the pyrolysis residue when constant volumetric gas flow was used with cellulose and peats. Reaction temperatures were also affected by pressure. Linear gas flow rate seemed to be an important parameter; clear increase in the amount of pyrolysis residue is not observed with constant linear nitrogen flow rate. The results
will be utilized later in more large-scale studies of pressurized gasification and combustion.
