Abstract

Flash-pyrolysis oil is projected as the most competitive liquid fuel from biomass. The use of pyrolysis oil as a diesel-power-plant fuel is studied. Pyrolysis-oil fuel characteristics are analysed, the oil is employed as fuel in a test diesel engine, and the economics of the system are analysed. The diesel-power-plant concept has several advantages, especially in small-scale production. The concept has several technical uncertainties, which are addressed in a research project.
