II Pyrolysis and Liquefaction of Biomass and Wastes (PYROLIQ 2023)
Time & Location
May 7 - May 12, 2023
About the event
The Pyroliq II conference will be a forum for discussion of the recent advances in the pyrolysis and liquefaction technologies of biomass, organic residues and wastes to intermediate products like bio-oil, biochar, syngas and torrefied materials. This will include slow, intermediate and fast pyrolysis, hydropyrolysis, solvent liquefaction and hydrothermal processing. A special session will be dedicated to pyrolysis-liquefaction of wastes from fossil origin, such as plastics. The refining and/or upgrading of resulting product intermediates using standalone facilities or co-processed taking advantage of existing infrastructure will be also an important topic for this conference.
Final products are derived after proper fractionation, isolation, purification and/or upgrading, and contributions addressing the processing to marketable materials, chemicals and fuels are especially invited. This discussion will include techno-economic analyses and life cycle assessments.
The conference will also offer a platform to those who are able to report on commercially successful processes.
Main Themes and Proposed Sessions
- Fundamentals of pyrolysis and liquefaction technologies, including lignin or cellulose depolymerization (reaction mechanisms in dry and solvent environments, reaction kinetics, product selectivity, effects of heat and mass transfer limitations, catalysis)
- Reactor development and modelling (testing and modelling of lab-scale units)
- Process development and integration (testing of fully continuous laboratory setups and pilot installations providing a full mass balance closure, including pre-treatment, reaction and product separation)
- Resources and feedstock characterization and pretreatment
- Product characterization, separation and upgrading (refers to chemical characterization, isolation, purification and post treatment / upgrading of fractions or single compounds from the first products of pyrolysis or liquefaction; this would also include catalytic hydro-processing of bio-oils)
- Development of added-value products and market studies (heat, electricity, fuels, chemicals and materials notably from lignin)
- Technical, economic and environmental feasibility studies
- Novelties (integration of electrochemistry, membranes, hydrogen, fuel cells, ionic liquids, molten salts, etc.)
- Pyrolysis or liquefaction of waste from fossil origin (e.g. plastics)
- Successful demonstration, scale-up and commercialization
