Low-energy pyrolysis using supercritical CO2: new research

February 23, 2011 |

In the UK, a leading researcher at the University of York has developed a low-temperature microwave pyrolysis of biomass using supercritical carbon dioxide to produce wax products without solvents residues. It allows a more precise control over the heating process, and saves energy, too.

An advantage of using the technology is also the quality of the obtained oils.

More on the story.
